Most of the symptoms associated with motion sickness are mild and easily treatable. However, if motion sickness worsens or symptoms are very severe, consult a doctor. There are certain antihistamine medications that can be very effective in reducing and preventing motion sickness. Antihistamine medications such as Bonine, Antivert, or Dramamine are available over the counter and may be used for mild symptoms.
Ginger capsules or sipping on ginger ale also helps to alleviate the nausea and settle the stomach. For more severe symptoms of motion sickness, prescription medication such as TransdermScop, a medicated skin patch can help to prevent motion sickness. Keep in mind that these medications may cause unwanted side effects such as drowsiness.
Herbal and homeopathic remedies are an excellent natural alternative to help relieve all forms of motion sickness. Use herbs such as Zingiber officinalis (Ginger) and Mentha piperita (Mint) to provide digestive comfort. Homeopathic ingredients such as Kalium phosphate, Cocculus and Pulsatilla vulgaris act as a restorative and nerve tonic and helps to promote comfort while traveling.
