How to Road Trip Without Being Motion Sick
So if you have ever experienced motion sickness you understand the struggle. I have gone most of my life being motion sickness free, so the first time it happened to me I was very confused as to what was happening.
My First Encounter with Motion Sickness
I was on a road trip with my sisters and reading emails on my phone when it hit me, I started feeling a little dizzy and nauseated all at once. I shook it off and continued going through emails. After
about 15 minutes and it did not go away I got a little worried. I told my sisters that I was not feeling well and one of my sisters, who is very much used to motion sickness in the car told me exactly what was happening. I felt awful. And the only wish I had at that moment was for the car to please stop so I wouldn’t have the spinnies. At that time I just went to sleep so I didn’t have to deal anymore and was glad when we were at our destination when I woke.
I did some research about seasickness and was shocked when I realized that motion sickness is a common condition that affects millions of people and more than half of them are women. What was even more shocking is that many sufferers don’t do anything to treat it, or treat it with the wrong products and ineffective methods. Whats more, Dramamine recently conducted a national survey to see what women are avoiding and what they would like to do but don’t because of motion sickness. I could not believe that
• 53 percent avoid the highway for road trips
• 51 percent do not go on rides at amusement parks
• 50 percent stay home instead of going on a cruise
To me this is crazy! But at the same time motion sickness is no joke! It feels like you are the wrong kind of drunk and it really comes out of no where. So I thought this was understandable. So when I had an opportunity to take the Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals No More Missed Moments Challenge, I thought this was a great opportunity to continue on with all the things I love to do including my road trip I am doing this summer to Ohio, Chicago, and Montreal…all in the same week! Taking the challenge is easy. All you have to do is take the Dramamine 30 minutes before I get in the car and that’s it! Challenge accepted.
My plan is to take Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals, which contains the clinically tested ginger dosage required for preventing and treating motion sickness. Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals helps prevent and relieve motion sickness symptoms like nausea and vomiting, which products like antacids and upset stomach relievers do not. And since it’s made from natural ginger, it is safe to use every day you travel. Once I got the Dramamine in the mail I thought I was all set!
The Motion Sickness That Through Me For a Loop
My trip isn’t until August but I ended up using my Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals sooner than I expected. I have a standing desk and often work on Miss Millennia Magazine at my computer while standing. Well one day I was doing my usual thing, writing, reading, and emailing when it hit me. I was having motion sickness after a long day of working behind the screen.That oh so familiar feeling of nausea and dizziness all at once became unbearable. I tried sitting and working, but it was already too late.
I took 2 of the Dramamine® capsules and took a break. After only about 15 minutes the pills started to take effect and I was able to get back to work. I could not believe it! I would suffer for hours in the car before and this has been relieved in only 15 minutes. This might as well be a miracle cure for how relieved I felt. I personally love ginger and you can smell the ginger in these babies as soon as you pop the cap. I felt awesome, and I know that when I take my road trip, I will be all set.
If you are a regular sufferer of motion sickness there is no need to miss out on things you love like road trips, amusement parks, and cruises. Take the Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals No More Missed Moments Challenge and take the Dramamine® 30 minutes before any activity that usually causes motion sickness. You don’t have to suffer! Have fun this summer doing whatever you want to do, motion sickness-free!
