Motion sickness – I’ve suffered from it for years. Now living in Colorado I feel like I have to be even more diligent about paying attention to how I feel as we climb in altitude on the mountain passes. I’m not typically the driver on our trips but I try to avoid motion sickness medicines due to the drowsiness factor. I was given the chance to try Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals and today I am sharing how we put it to the test.
Last year we took the kids and grandparents on a trip that included a theme park and roller coasters. I love roller coasters and lucky for me I they don’t really make me sick. My father-in-law however does get sick. For weeks he talked about this roller coaster that had made him so sick the last time he visited the park and how he wasn’t going to ride it again.
Well, it was late and we all were excited, and he ended up riding that same roller coaster without knowing it (it has a new name and is part of a new section of the park). I practically skipped off the ride eager to ride again. I looked back expecting to find my father-in-law right behind me but instead he was a few yards back with his hands on his knees looking like he might fall over. He was done for the rest of the night and wasn’t 100% the rest of the trip. Talk about ruining a vacation.
How to Easily Treat Motion Sickness
This year we did the same trip and we knew we needed a solution. You can’t go to a theme park and not enjoy the rides! I had my father-in-law test out Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals, talk about putting them to the test. And I am pretty surprised and excited about the results.
A little bit of info on Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals:
- It is non-drowsy, perfect for enjoying family vacations without the inconvenience of motion sickness.
- It contains natural ginger to combat the effects of motion sickness unlike other remedies like ginger ale and candies.
I am happy to report that my father-in-law loved Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals. He was able to ride the same coaster with minimal side affects. Maybe a little off for a moment but nothing like years past. He didn’t get drowsy, and even rode another roller coaster twice back to back. He had planned to get a motion sickness patch from his doctor before leaving but with everything that goes into planning a family vacation you just run out of time.
We now have both Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals and Dramamine® for Kids in our car at all times. You can read more about treating motion sickness in kids here. Since motion sickness can make a road trip come to a screeching halt it’s just not worth it to take the chance. I am really excited that Dramamine® now has a non-drowsy solution to motion sickness so I can be a driver on our next road trip! Be sure to get the digital coupon to try it for yourself!
