i need something very effective. Going on my honeymoon soon after my wedding and it wont b a pretty sight for my other half to see me vomiting away...! Lol

Extra strong mints really help for my travel sickness. Might be just a personal thing though.

They are useful for many people but not all. Under £10 at tesco pharmacy. Might be a lot cheaper online on amazon or ebay. Or you can make your own. Helps my child a lot as otherwise sometimes used to get sick within the 1 mile distance to nursery sometimes! The first day we put the bands on we travelled more than 3 hours within 15 mins of buying it. Medicines used to make Her unsteady on her feet.

Also look straight out of the window in the front and don't look out of the side windows to avoid nystagmus that aggravates motion sickness.

ps: the bands can help with sickness caused by chemotherapy etc. Won't help everyone but no harm in trying. We couldn't take our child anywhere for almost 3y until I thought of using it for motion sickness for her. Didn't strike me to use it for motion sickness even though had used it on chemotherapy patients abroad for giving nausea relief. Got tired of not being able to take my child anywhere and no help from gp etc add most day they will grow out of it and medicines made her unsteady. Really glad it worked for my child but I do know it didn't work for everyone. I do keep a Nexus 7 tablet in the car to keep her busy so that the eyes are not looking out of the side window. I know People who have successfully used it for pregnancy sickness too. Hope it works out for you. Best to try this first as not expensive and no medicines involved. If it didn't help then check out your gp for medicines. Hope something works out for you.

£8 ish here & worth every penny & more!

amazon.co.uk/Nau…nds

£1.35, tried and tested by my daughter on a trip to NYC. Inc flying, long coach trip and Staten Island Ferry. She normally suffers badly with travel sickness but these were brilliant.

My friend suffers badly with motion sickness, she gets sick even lying on a lilo ! She takes Sturgeron tablets which help her and wears the bands

I can also recommend the travel bands, tried all sorts if medical solutions and tablets and none worked well. Travel bands and a full (ish) belly work for me on all forms of transport.

thanks alot for ur response. Very informative. It is really stressful trying to find something that will actually work. But i will take ur word on the band as many people have suggested it but to be on the safe side might take a tablet ontop. Thanku so much for ur help x

I have seen the band's in some pound shops, barley sugar boiled sweets used to help me

I get seasick, but my son gets sea, car and air sick. We both find the arm bands and cinnarezine tablets a great help

Dramamine, you can buy it from Amazon. Also, Phenergan. You might be able to find it on an online chemist.

Natural ginger in very good for travel sickness.

The best thing we ever found for our daughter was Joy-Rides.
They seem very hard to get now, but are still available here/here in the UK.
Boots no longer sell them, but this page gives details of dosage for both children and adults.
I've just checked, and 'Kwells' (& Kwells Kids) seem to be exactly the same thing, with the same active ingredient (hyoscine hydrobromide), so may have replaced Joy-Rides.
Good luck.

I second Phenergan. Really good stuff should be able to get it from chemist for about £7 for around 50 tablets.

salt and vinegar crisps. iust eat one crisp every so often on a journey. helps me every time even on a very long car journey or country roads

Natural remedy = ginger. Drug therapy = hyoscine (kwells or kwells junior). I'd go for the kwells but they do give you a dry mouth. Phenergan is what naughty parents give kids to shut them up. They will be so drowsy

If taking tablets I suggest taking one sometime before your planned holiday.
From experience, if taking for the first time on the day of your holiday and you turn out to be allergic it can make you have to cancel your holiday plans!

Thanks for the pack of 4 tip. I didnt know they came in a pack of four. We have lost a couple as one of a pair sometimes gets lost and would always buy in a hurry at tesco pharmacy as couldnt find them in ther pharmacies near me. Am buying the pack of 4 as not much costlier (cheaper than 1 at tesco). Hopefully they will be of the same quality.

Tesco do adult and child sizes and different colours for kids an adults.

looks like there is a pack of 6 amazon.co.uk/PAC…VQ/ bought this one as a pair each for each car and one pair as spare. Kids will lose it as have lost a few already.

Ive posted the bands I mentioned in the deal section too as there may be more people see it in there, hope it helps x

i keep travel sickness bags handy for travel in car and planes and when going abroad amazon.co.uk/Tra…V2/ or just the ones you get on flights. Handy for emergencies. Also before getting the bands I used to layer the car with disposable absorbent bedmats on the child car seat and on the car seat and below on the floor and back of the front seat. So much easier to throw everything in under a minute and layer them with new sheets (keep a full bag of them in the car) quickly. Much more efficient and quicker than getting the car valeted which you dont have time for when rushing to the air port etc.

this is one of the types they kept at tesco in many colours amazon.co.uk/Ban…V8/

My lad used to be a terrible. Traveller and was sick in cars , boats planes , we tried all sorts of medications but not much helped , I agree with sickly sweet to try the pills before your honeymoon as they can sometimes make some people feel unwell , try to be calm and reduce stress as much as possible and be prepared in case you're ill . Spare clothes wipes etc
The band do work for some , prob a good buy if they help , all the best and remember true love looks past the puke , I'm sure your new hubby will understand if you are sick x
