I have suffered from motion sickness all my life. My mom still tells the tales from when I was a baby throwing up in my carseat from motion sickness. I get motion sickness on theme park rides and airplanes too. I absolutely can not travel without my Dramamine. It has been my vacation saver for years.
Unfortunately I am not alone to suffer from motion sickness:
Motion sickness is a problem for both adults and kids alike. According to an Omnibus Survey in June 2011, 34% of households with children ages 2-12, have a child with motion sickness. This is three times the rate for adult motion sickness (11% of households). Motion sickness is most prevalent in cars, followed by airplanes and boats. Typical symptoms are nausea, dizziness, and vomiting.
I am already trying to plan out our vacations for the year and Dramamine will be my number 1 product to pack. Thankfully my children have not shown signs of having motion sickness (knock on wood) but I will be packing plenty for myself! Living in Central Florida we go to theme parks a lot and I never go without my trusted Dramamine. Even when I forget to bring some I always stop to get more at a local drug store on the way. I am not blowing smoke up your *ahem* butts….this stuff really works! Whenever I take it I never throw up or even feel nauseous in the car, ride or plane.
I love the tube that it comes in since it easily slides into my bag or pocket. I have never found the original formula to make me drowsy but no worries as they now make a less drowsy formula too.
