    Pup after my own heart. Best way to avoid carsickness is to sleep through the trip!

    I think riding backwards like this would CAUSE motion (moron) sickness. But then, so many things do, for me.

      Dramamine is my friend. Not so much in cars anymore, but planes and when I’ve had to be on a boat – I am a terrible traveler. Sounds like among this crowd I am not alone. Hmmmm, what can it all mean.🤔

        Dramamine is too soporific for me. Bonine is less drowsy, is chewable, and
        the tablets can be broken in half to lessen the dose. The half tablet works
        perfectly for me for about eight hours. Bonine has been used by NASA.
        This has been another public service announcement, for all of us motion
        sickness types. Which, by the way, has been linked to the propensity to get migraines. Carsickness as a kid, migraine possible as an adult. *dang!*
        We have brains that revolt now and then.

          I use the 24-hour “less drowsy” formula of Dramamine; I’ve never had a problem. I also like that it lasts all day if I’m on vacation or something and don’t know exactly what I’ll be doing. I can take it in the morning and then spontaneous car rides aren’t a problem. (Went to Florida with some friends when I was in college and anywhere we were going to go was at least 45 minutes to an hour from my friend’s parents’ house where we were staying, so I just took Dramamine every morning at breakfast).

          (It’s not really 24 hours, though; I actually had the opportunity to test that a few years ago. Took it around 6 am, drove an hour to my friend’s house, then she drove us 4 hours to Maryland, took a train into Washington DC, went to the Holocaust Museum and some other stuff, had a late dinner, took the train back to the car, and got on the road about midnight to head home. Around 2 am I was starting to feel the ride. So I got about 20 hours out of one dose.)

            Excellent, I will try this. I was not aware of the 24–hour version.
            It sounds ideal.

              It used to be called Dramamine II but now it’s Dramamine® All Day Less Drowsy. You can probably find a store brand, too (I know Wegmans has their own generic.)

              They also recently came out with a “natural” version which is just a clinical dose of ginger. Not sure if I want to try it or just stick with what I know works.

                Also called Meclazine.

                  When I was in college, the health center gave me a prescription-strength dose for an inner ear infection. I was so dizzy I could barely stand up. It was viral, though, so they couldn’t do much else for me.

                  • Murray C. June 2, 2016 / 1:18 pm

                    I’ve given it to rabbits for head tilt (vet prescribed) which is as close as they can discover similar to having vertigo for rabbits. They’re off kilter and twist their heads to try to sort it all out. Can be very severe and affect the eyes. Mine had only minor cases and, thankfully, temporary.

          I’ve only experienced bad motion sickness on cruise ships, but as I get older I find that riding in the back seat of cars causes it now too. I have found that those velcro wrist bands that have a metal button that applies pressure to your wrists work wonders! I don’t know if they work for other types or more severe motion sickness, but you might find them worth trying. =)

          • Murray C. June 2, 2016 / 10:59 am

            The other forms of Dramamine don’t do much for me. I take a quarter of a tablet every hour and that solves the drowsiness issue. I do find that if, like I did once, you’re using it constantly (over a week end in my case, on the water most of the time) that you need to take it for the next day or two when you’re on land – otherwise it can all come charging back.😵

          Why does this not surprise me? (migraine/motion sickness connection)
