Motion Sickness Remedies

Do trips via planes, trains, automobiles, and boats usually spell trouble for you? Motion sickness can begin with uneasiness and quickly progress to a cold sweat, dizziness, and vomiting. Over-the-counter products may help prevent symptoms, but many also cause drowsiness. When feeling queasy, try focusing on the horizon or a distant, stationary object. Check out nausea remedies. Also, don't read, smoke, or sit near smokers. See smoking cessation aids.
