What is travel sickness?

Travel sickness is a common ailment that affects more travellers than you think. It happens when the movement you see differs from your inner ear sensations. Travel sickness causes dizziness, vomiting, and nausea. 

Travel sickness can be caused when traveling by car, train, aeroplane, or even a ship. Travel sickness is not dangerous, but it does make travelling an unpleasant experience. There are simple strategies, lifestyle changes, and medications that can help you get over travel sickness with ease. 

What are the symptoms of travel sickness?

Travel sickness can affect anyone. It can strike quickly and make you feel nauseous or break out in cold sweats. Its common symptoms include;

  • Lightheadedness
  • Increased saliva production in the mouth
  • Loss of appetite
  • Shakiness
  • Pale skin
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Shallow breathing

You can exhibit one or more symptoms at a time.

How do travel sickness medicines work?

Travel sickness tablets, like Avomine or Sturgeon, are very convenient and easy to use medications that can help prevent and treat the symptoms, like nausea, associated with travel sickness. They work by blocking the histamine action in the body from binding its receptors to a brain area known as the vomiting centre. This kind of action makes antihistamine tablets extremely effective in preventing travel sickness.

Whether you are travelling by car, boat, plane, or something else, the constant movement can cause a large number of signals to be sent to your brain, especially the vomiting centre, resulting in the manifestation of the symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and vertigo. The antihistamines work to block the histamine action in the vomiting part of the brain, thereby preventing the sensation of nausea.

Antihistamine tablets are perfectly suitable for use in adults and children aged 5 years and above.

How long does it take for travel sickness medicines to work?

The antihistamine tablets work gradually. Starting from the time you take your tablet, it may take 4 to 6 hours for the medicine to show its maximum effect. Make sure to follow the dosage instructions to the letter to ensure the best results. Take this medicine before travelling.

How to prevent motion sickness?

Avoidance of triggers is usually the best method of prevention. However, you cannot always avoid travelling. There are countless reasons you may need to travel at some point in life, like education, business, vacation etc. Therefore, you can adopt the following strategies in addition to taking your motion sickness medicine to lessen the impact of symptoms.

  • Sit in the front seat when travelling in a car or a bus
  • Prefer a seat with a window on aeroplanes and trains
  • Try lying down to rest or sleep during the journey if possible
  • Concentrate at the horizon
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Avoid alcoholic drinks or caffeinated beverages
