Easy steps to prevent motion sickness

Most people who are susceptible to motion sickness are aware of the fact. If you’re prone to motion sickness, the following preventive measures may help.

  • Focus on the horizon or on a distant, stationary object. Don't read.

  • Keep your head still, while resting against a seat back.

  • Don't smoke or sit near smokers.

  • Avoid spicy and greasy foods and alcohol. Don't overeat.

  • Take an over-the-counter antihistamine, at least 30 to 60 minutes before you travel. Expect drowsiness as a side effect.

  • Eat dry crackers or drink a carbonated beverage to help settle your stomach if you become ill.

Several medications exist for the treatment of motion sickness. Most only prevent the onset of symptoms. Also, many induce sleepiness, so operating machinery or a vehicle isn’t permitted while taking these types of medications. #nausea #motionsickness #airsick #carsick #dizziness #migraine #headache #winnielimkhoo #neurologist #specialist #manila #philippines #health #tips #help #advise #cure #treatment
