What is motion sickness? Causes & treatments

Many of us have experienced motion sickness at some point in our lives.

In fact, one in three people are considered ‘highly susceptible’ to the condition and pretty much everyone is susceptible to it if there are significant amounts of motion!1

What is motion sickness?

Motion sickness is the ill-feeling you can get from motion – that could be travelling by car, boat, plane or train, riding a roller coaster or VR gaming1 – a relatively new discovery in the motion sickness stakes which is commonly known as VR gaming sickness.

We say relatively because motion sickness – or travel sickness – goes back to when wheels were first put in motion and when the first ships sailed the high seas.2

It was known as cart or ship influence and the word ‘nausea’ – a common symptom of motion sickness – comes from the Greek ‘nausia’ or ‘nautia’ which originally meant seasickness.3

What causes motion sickness?

Motion sickness is understood to be caused by a sensory mismatch which confuses the brain. While our eyes are telling our brains we’re not moving because we’re sitting down – particularly if we’re looking down at our phones or reading a book – our inner ears are sensing motion.4

 

This mismatch of information causes a conflict in the brain which can then trigger the symptoms of motion sickness.1 These symptoms include feeling sick (nausea), sweating, headaches, increase in saliva, feeling cold and weak and going pale.5

Why am I prone to motion sickness?

Whether it’s you or your child or another family member prone to travel sickness, it’s unpleasant and it can be upsetting, particularly for youngsters.

To be fair it’s not fun whatever age you are and can make you a little anxious about a journey – or a day at the theme park!

It’s not fully understood why some people are more susceptible than others.

It’s more common in children aged two to 12 – babies rarely suffer from it* – and women, especially during pregnancy or menstruation which may be linked to fluctuating oestrogen levels.6

Those who suffer from migraines appear more likely to suffer from motion sickness, there’s even been studies into whether it’s a genetic or inherited condition.1

How to stop motion sickness

Kwells is here to try and help everyone to travel happier and with over 70 years of expertise in providing over-the-counter travel sickness remedies, we know more than a thing or two about trying to prevent it.

 

First and foremost, motion sickness shouldn’t stop you from travelling, going on adventures and doing the things you enjoy. Depending on how you’re getting to your destination – or even if you’re just staying put with your VR gaming headset – there are things you can try to prevent or relieve the symptoms of motion sickness.

 

If you’re travelling in a car, boat, plane or train it’s best to be prepared with bags, wipes, etc – just in case. Eating a light, carb-based food like cereals a couple of hours before a journey can help to reduce car sickness, seasickness, airsickness or train motion sickness.5

 

Plan some breaks into your car journey to get some fresh air or go for a short walk and take plenty of cold water to drink.5 Sitting in the front of a car, over the wing of a plane or in the middle of a boat helps to keep the motion you experience to a minimum.5

 

Closing your eyes can help to reduce the sensory signals to the brain – sleeping is even better if you can.5 There are several things to avoid, reading being the most obvious, but an audiobook, podcast or music is a good way to distract the brain away from those motion signals.5

 

Don’t be tempted to eat too much before a journey and try to steer clear of fatty or spicy food.5 Looking ahead at the road – a driver’s eye view if you like, as drivers are less likely to get motion sickness – or looking at the horizon can also help.5

How to prevent motion sickness on rides?

As kids we queued for hours and clamoured to get on the fastest rides and the highest rollercoasters. By the time our own children are big enough we can be a little less keen and a lot queasier.

That doesn’t mean we have to miss out on all the family fun though – following similar advice given for motion sickness while travelling, we may still be able to scream to go faster with the best of them!

Before you take on the highs, lows, ups and downs of the theme park, try eating a light, carb-based meal an hour or two beforehand – it’s best to avoid the temptation of fairground burgers vans! Try to pick a seat in the most stable part of the ride or carriage, usually the middle.

VR gaming sickness

Motion sickness is an unfortunate side effect for some VR gamers and one that headset manufacturers are constantly looking to fix.

It’s caused by the same sensory mismatch – you’re standing still but the virtual environment is moving around you.4

It’s the lag time or ‘latency’ in the game – which is the time it takes for movement to register on the headset display – which is thought to cause the brain to receive confusing signals.4

 

To reduce the risk of VR gaming motion sickness try playing for shorter periods of 15-30 minutes and build up gradually. Take regular breaks, step outside for fresh air or keep the room cool by opening a window. Try sitting down to restrict your movements and therefore minimise disorientation.

For more tips, insights and advice head to our VR gaming sickness blog here

 

Ever felt nauseous or lightheaded while scrolling away on your phone or staring a computer screen for too long? This is known as cybersickness and while it’s not the same as VR gaming sickness in that physical movement isn’t involved, a moving screen can still cause the same sensory mismatch. Try to take a break and get some fresh air and refreshment to relieve the symptoms.7

Further help

So, what can you do if self-help methods aren’t working?

You can speak to your local pharmacist for motion sickness medication advice.8 They will be able to provide information and advice on suitable over-the-counter remedies.

Preparing for your first cruise

You’ve taken the plunge and booked a holiday on the high seas! Anticipating your first cruise is incredibly exciting – a wave of excitement in fact!

There’s usually a whole host of destinations to explore, an abundance of on-ship activities and entertainment on offer, plus an absolute buffet of dining opportunities to pick and choose from.

Admittedly that means there are more decisions to make when it comes to planning and packing than on a traditional land-based holiday. So, whether you’re travelling with friends or family, you want it to be as smooth sailing as possible and it’s best to be prepared. From that pre-cruise checklist to travel tips once you’ve set sail, Kwells is here to help you enjoy the journey! Here’s our guide to ensuring everything’s watertight before you leave and once you’ve set sail.

Packing the essentials

You’re all booked, what’s next? Once the tickets, luggage tags and pre-check-in information are all nicely dealt with through your cruise line operator, you’ll be able to book those excursions and dining reservations – a real taste of the adventure that awaits!

Unless you’re cruising around the UK, you’ll obviously need a passport and depending on where you’ll be travelling to, you may need a visa or other forms of official ID – best to check all this with your cruise line or travel agent.

The countdown to riding the wave

Whether you’re a super organiser who likes to prepare well in advance or someone who decides on the contents of their suitcase the day before your holiday, there are a few extra considerations when preparing for a cruise and it’s best to avoid being too last minute.

 

Of course, clothing choices will be based on the climate you’ll be visiting but as a cruiser, you’ll also need to factor in dress codes including any formal occasions or themed nights. That said, don’t panic and throw everything in just in case. Cabins usually have more limited wardrobe and storage space and you don’t want to be forking out for excess baggage charges.

 

Clothing basics include swimming attire, shorts, t-shirts, jeans and comfy shoes to walk in, as you’re likely to be clocking up a fair few miles while sightseeing on dry land. Then there’s the evening dress code ranging from cocktail wear and suits – tuxedos even! – to the sort of more casual attire you’d usually wear on a night out. Jeans are usually ok for buffets but keep the beach wear, baseball caps and flip-flops for poolside!

Packing the extras

There’s no set-in stone dos and don’ts when it comes to packing toiletries and personal grooming accessories for your cruise – just decide on all the essentials that you’d usually take on holiday.

A first aid kit can come in handy, as can a laundry bag, zip lock bags for storage and something suitable for carrying wet clothes back from any beach days.

Maybe consider a money belt to store your cash, cards and official documents such as passports and a driving licence if you’re planning to hire a car. Change can also be useful for tips.

Seasickness preparation

Worries over whether seasickness will strike can certainly put something of a dampener on going on a cruise, particularly if you’ve never been on one before and you’re wondering if it will spoil your experience.

The good news is, in the worst-case scenario, the majority of passengers who do feel seasick tend to experience it within the first 48 hours of being on a ship or boat before acclimatising and getting their ‘sea legs’.1

 

What is seasickness?

Seasickness is a form of motion sickness, it’s caused by the inner ear sending different signals to your brain from those your eyes are seeing.2 The inner ear senses motion while the eyes sense you’re not moving and these confusing messages can cause you to feel unwell.2

 

Symptoms of seasickness

Symptoms include feeling sick, feeling weak, headaches, feeling cold, going pale and sweating.3 As with car, plane or train travel there are things you can try to prevent or relieve seasickness before you go down the route of taking seasickness medication.

If you’re concerned, know you’re prone to seasickness or you’re travelling with someone who is, try these tips3:

  • Ahead of your journey avoid eating a heavy meal, opt for a light, carb-based food like cereal an hour or two before travelling.
  • You can keep motion to a minimum by sitting in the middle of the ship, preferably on deck where you can breathe fresh air – the same applies when selecting your cabin.
  • It may sound odd but try not to look at the waves! Look at the horizon instead.

You’ll find more tips on preventing seasickness – and travel sickness in general – here.

What to do if you’re sick

  • If you’re sick take tiny sips of water – be careful not to drink too much for the first 10-20 minutes or you may be sick again.3
  • Get some fresh air and try a cool flannel on your forehead. 3
  • If you still feel unwell try to sleep and when you feel well enough, try a light carb-based snack. 3

Motion sickness is common in children3 – find tips and advice on how to minimise the risk of it happening and how to be prepared in our blog.

Still moving?

Sometimes when you leave a boat or ship you can still feel like you’re on it, almost like the ground is rocking beneath your feet!3

This is known as ‘mal de debarquement’ (French for ‘sick on disembarking’) and is a sensation believed to be caused by an overstimulation of the balance organs. It usually only lasts for an hour or so and doesn’t require treatment.3

What about seasickness medicines?

If you’re concerned about seasickness ahead of your first cruise, speak to your pharmacist about an over-the-counter travel sickness remedy such as hyoscine hydrobromide. Hyoscine hydrobromide – an effective medicine for motion sickness3 – is the active ingredient in Kwells for adults and children over 10 and Kwells travel sickness tablets for kids aged 4+.

 

Kwells travel sickness tablets

Hyoscine hydrobromide (the active ingredient in Kwells travel sickness tablets) temporarily reduces the effect of movement on the balance organs of the inner ear and the nerves responsible for nausea. Because Kwells tablets melt in the mouth, absorption into the bloodstream is very rapid and they can be taken up to 20–30 minutes before travelling or at the onset of sickness.4 Find out more about how Kwells help to prevent or relieve travel sickness or view all our travel sickness products.

Travel sickness may be common, particularly in children, but while it’s comforting to know you’re not alone as a sufferer, there’s no denying it can leave a cloud over your travel plans.

Knowing help is out there if you need it and where to go for advice and over-the-counter treatments can help to reduce any anxiety around it.

Kwells 300 Microgram Tablets

We’re here to provide as much advice and support as possible because we truly believe travel sickness shouldn’t put a dampener on your journeys.

Travel sickness, also known as motion sickness, is caused by a sensory mismatch between the eyes, inner ear and the brain.

The confusing messages the brain receives – the eyes are signalling ‘we’re sat down and still’, the inner ear is sensing movement – can cause those familiar travel sickness symptoms such as nausea, sickness, headaches and generally feeling unwell.1

How to prevent travel sickness

There are some things you can try to prevent it from happening or relieve it once it starts.

 

These include1:

  • Opting for a light carb-based meal like cereal a couple of hours before you travel – steer clear of anything too heavy, fatty or spicy.
  • Where you sit, such as in the front of a car, in the middle of a boat or over the wing of a plane, can make a difference. It helps to reduce the motion.
  • Get fresh air if you can, plan in stops for exercise and take refreshments such as cold water.
  • Avoid strong smells such as petrol or diesel fumes where possible.
  • Try not to read or look down at phones or tablets. Listen to music, an audiobook or a podcast instead.
  • Closing your eyes is a good way to reduce those confusing sensory signals – sleeping is even better as it helps the brain to ignore them.
  • Focus on the road ahead or the horizon – this can help the brain to understand you are actually moving!

Pharmacy advice – what to expect

If self-help tips aren’t working and you feel you’ve tried all you can, you can speak to your local pharmacist.2

Pharmacists are the high street’s healthcare experts and are often approached for advice on treating travel sickness in children – those aged two to 12 are particularly susceptible to travel sickness.3

They’ll want to know3:

  • How old your child is
  • Any previous history
  • How you’re travelling such as car, plane, boat
  • How long you’ll be travelling for
  • Any medication history

If it’s you looking for a remedy, they will ask similar questions.

They’ll be able to provide information and advice on suitable over-the-counter remedies which may be able to help.

More about Kwells

Kwells Adults Travel Sickness 300 microgram tablets* and Kwells Kids Travel Sickness 150 microgram tablets* contain a substance called hyoscine hydrobromide which is taken to prevent travel sickness.4

 

Hyoscine hydrobromide temporarily reduces the effect of movement on the balance organs of the inner ear and the nerves responsible for nausea.5 It’s understood to help block the confusing inner ear messages to the part of the brain that controls vomiting.4 It also reduces the wave-like muscle contractions in the walls of the stomach.4

 

Since Kwells tablets melt in the mouth, they work fast on preventing and controlling travel sickness and can be taken up to 20–30 minutes before travelling or at the onset of sickness.5 That means you can be prepared ahead of your journey whether you’re travelling by road, air or sea. If you’re planning a longer journey, one tablet – or half to one tablet for children aged four to 10 years – can be taken every six hours as required, but no more than three times in 24 hours.5

Where to buy Kwells

Kwells are available to buy over-the-counter – you don’t need a prescription – from pharmacies, both in the high street or from online retailers such as Boots, Superdrug, LloydsPharmacy and ChemistDirect.

If you decide to buy Kwells online rather than in a pharmacy store, you’ll be asked to complete a questionnaire which will be checked by a pharmacist first to make sure they’re suitable for you.

That’s because Kwells is known as a Pharmacy Medicine item which can only be bought under the supervision of a pharmacist and by someone aged 18 or over.

If you have any doubts about using Kwells tablets correctly, seek the advice of your pharmacist or doctor.

10 tips to help car sickness

Car sickness is one of the most common forms of motion sickness, second only to seasickness.1

From days out to staycations, there’s usually plenty of car journeys to contend with. We believe they should be part of the excitement of a trip rather than spoiled by any dread or anxiety of car sickness.

family outside car

As we’re much more likely to be travelling by car – or bus – on a regular basis it’s the motion sickness we tend to experience the most.

That’s why we offer as much support and advice as possible to help you fully understand the condition so you can take steps to prevent it and be prepared if it does happen.

What is car sickness?

As with other types of motion sickness, car sickness is caused by the brain receiving conflicting messages around motion. The eyes signal we’re stationary while the inner ear senses we’re moving and this mismatch of information causes confusion in the brain which can then trigger the symptoms of car sickness including nausea, headaches, sweating, feeling cold and going pale.2

 

While it’s a common condition affecting up to one in three of us3, it can make journeys unpleasant for sufferers and fellow travellers, particularly for parents with children who suffer from it. It can come on quickly too which is why it’s always good to be prepared.4

 

Children aged two to 12 tend to be more susceptible, as well as women5 and those who suffer from migraines6, but we still don’t really know why it affects some people while others don’t suffer from it all. The good news is most people tend to grow out of it in their teens.5

Why does car sickness happen?

That sensory mismatch we were talking about occurs because our eyes aren’t focused on the things that would send the right signals to the brain about movement.

This could be for several reasons, for instance a young child sitting low down in the back seat of the car probably can’t see out of the window very well.6

It can also happen when we’re looking down and reading a book or looking at our phones.

10 Tips to prevent car sickness

There are things you can do to lower the risk of getting car sickness, help to relieve the symptoms if they start and give you peace of mind to make you more relaxed about travelling.

 

And they start before your journey begins, so here goes!2

  • Pre-plan some breaks in your journey so you can stop off for fresh air or a short walk.
  • Have a light, carb-based meal an hour or two before travelling – avoid anything too heavy, spicy or fatty.
  • Take some bottles of cold water – this can be refreshing to sip if you’re feeling unwell.
  • Be prepared just in case with wipes, sick bags, a bag to discard rubbish and maybe a cleaning aid.
  • If car sick-prone children are old enough, sit them in the front of the car so they have a clear view out of the window.
  • If children are sat in the back try to encourage them to look out of the window or at the horizon. Sing songs, chat or play games like eye spy to try and distract them from motion signals.
  • Closing your eyes can help to reduce the sensory signals to the brain.
  • Sleep if you can as this may help the brain to ignore some of the motion signals.
  • Avoid reading or looking at phones and devices, tune in an audiobook, podcast or listen to music instead.
  • Try to make sure there’s plenty of fresh air, open a window when you can and avoid strong smells such as petrol or diesel.

Further help

If you feel like you’ve exhausted the self-help route and need further advice, speak to a pharmacist about a travel sickness remedy.7

Kwells Adults Travel Sickness 300 microgram tablets* and Kwells Kids Travel Sickness 150 microgram tablets* can be used on short or longer journeys and taken every six hours – no more than three times in 24 hours.

Because Kwells tablets melt in the mouth, absorption into the bloodstream is very rapid and they can be taken up to 20–30 minutes before travelling or at the onset of sickness.

Ever wondered how travel sickness tablets work to prevent or relieve motion sickness?

Before we head into the science bit let’s explore the condition a little more.

Motion sickness is the general term for the symptoms we might experience as a result of moving.1

Depending how you’re travelling you may call it car sickness, seasickness or airsickness.

family sat in the boot of a car

VR gaming sickness is a relatively new term that’s used to describe the symptoms that some people get while, you’ve guessed it, VR gaming.

This time it isn’t physical movement that can cause motion sickness symptoms but the movement of the virtual environment within VR gaming headsets. Find out more about VR gaming sickness.

However you package it up, it’s unpleasant, sometimes awkward – there’s nothing worse than a wave of travel sickness in front of fellow ferry or plane passengers – and can be distressing, particularly for children.

It can even make some of us anxious about travelling if it happens on a regular basis.

Symptoms of motion sickness can vary from person to person, but they can include headache and nausea, being sick, sweating, an increase in saliva, feeling cold and going pale.2

 

It’s caused by a sensory mismatch between the eyes and inner ear – the eyes sense you’re stationary while the inner ear senses movement.2

 

Those conflicting messages cause confusion in the brain which then triggers the symptoms we associate with travel sickness.2

 

When it comes to preventing travel sickness there are several things you can try, including eating a light carb-based food such as cereal before a journey and if you’re travelling by car focus on the road ahead if possible.2

 

Try to minimise motion by sitting in the front of a car, in the middle of a boat – preferably on deck – or over the wing of a plane.2

Travel sickness remedies

If you’ve tried every travel sickness self-help tip in the book and feel you need further help and advice, speak to a pharmacist about an over-the-counter travel sickness remedy such as hyoscine hydrobromide.

Hyoscine hydrobromide is the active ingredient in Kwells3 Adults Travel Sickness 300 microgram tablets and Kwells Kids Travel Sickness 150 microgram tablets and is mainly used to prevent travel sickness4.

It can also be used to reduce the amount of saliva in your mouth.4

It blocks a naturally occurring chemical in parts of the brain and nervous system called acetylcholine4 – a neurotransmitter which among other actions contracts smooth muscles and dilates blood vessels5.

For travel sickness hyoscine hydrobromide is understood to temporarily block messages from the inner ear to the part of the brain that controls vomiting.4

It reduces the effect of movement on the balance organs of the inner ear and the nerves responsible for nausea.3

Tablets containing hyoscine hydrobromide, such as Kwells, can be taken up to 20-30 minutes before a journey or at the onset of sickness for the fast and effective prevention and control of travel sickness3.

Cinnarizine is another active ingredient used travel sickness medicines.6

It’s known as a drowsy, or sedating, antihistamine and it’s also used to stop dizziness and sickness caused by inner ear problems.6

Cinnarizine blocks the effects of histamine in the brain to reduce symptoms of travel sickness.

However, it works gradually and can take up to four hours from the time you take the tablet for it to reach its full effect.6

It has to be that little distress call: “I’m going to be sick!”.

You may have enough warning to be able to alleviate child travel sickness by pulling over for some fresh air and refreshment if you’re in the car.

If you’re mid air or sea, you’ve got a slight problem.

When it occurs without much warning the best you can do is to be prepared.

Bags, wipes, hand sanitiser and lots of sympathy for a distressed child – and much Kwells sympathy to whoever has to clean up the consequences and tolerate the aftermath for some time to come!

three children in the back of a car

If you have youngsters prone travel sickness you don’t need us to tell you it’s most common in children – those aged two to 12 in fact.1

That’s the bad news. The good news is babies and little ones up to the age of two rarely seem to suffer from it and travel sickness for kids can significantly reduce with age – although, unfortunately for some of us, it can continue into adulthood.1

It’s also more common in women – particularly during pregnancy – than men.1

Travel sickness – also known as motion sickness – can happen on any form of travel but children most commonly experience it as car sickness2.

It’s thought to be caused by a conflict of messages received by the brain from the eyes and ears3 but it’s still only partly understood and we don’t know why some children get it and others don’t2.

The big travel sickness conversation!

What we do know is when we’re sat in a car, generally our body is telling our brain we’re moving forward.2

But for children that’s not always the case.

If your child is sitting too low down to see out through a window to the horizon or if they’re looking down and reading, messages to the brain can get confused.2

Think of it as conversation between the ear, eyes and brain and it goes something like this…

 

The part that controls balance and motion in the ear is saying, ‘we’re moving’.2 The eyes are saying, ‘we’re reading a book and sitting still!’.2

 

This sensory mismatch is a bit too much for the brain to deal with and can lead to nervous system responses which can cause nausea and other symptoms.1

 

At this point the brain is probably saying, ‘too much misinformation, here’s what happens!’.

 

Other symptoms can include4:

 

  • Going sweaty
  • Feeling cold
  • Headaches
  • Feeling weak
  • An increase in saliva

 

Once nausea kicks in there’s very little that can be done, so early prevention is definitely better than cure with travel sickness.3

There are things you can try ahead of the journey to help children with travel sickness

 

  • Give your youngster a light, carb-based snack before travelling such as cereal or crackers. Avoid anything ‘too heavy’.2
  • Plan several stops into your journey time for fresh air, a little walk and refreshment such as water.
  • Being elevated so your child can see through the window to the horizon may help so safety seats and booster seats can come in handy.2

Once you’re travelling on your way…

 

  • Don’t take any strong-smelling food in the car and avoiding smoking, petrol or diesel fumes if possible.2
  • Where you sit can make a difference, if your child is old enough, they may feel better sat in the front of the car. For planes over the wing can help as can being on deck in the middle of a boat.4
  • Keep youngsters distracted and entertained with music, singing, I Spy and podcasts to stop them from looking down. Books, phones, tablets and gaming consoles are not recommended for those prone to travel sickness.2
  • If nausea starts to creep in, ginger in the form of a biscuit or tea is a good tip to try.5

If self-help tips aren’t working, don’t worry, you can speak to your local pharmacist for advice.5

They’ll want to know3:

  • How old your child is
  • Any previous history
  • How you’re travelling such as car, plane, boat
  • How long you’ll be travelling for
  • Any medication history

They can provide information and advice on suitable over-the-counter remedies which may be able to help5 such as Kwells Kids Travel Sickness 150 microgram tablets*.

Because Kwells tablets melt in the mouth, absorption into the bloodstream is very rapid and they can be taken up to 20–30 minutes before travelling or at the onset of sickness.

The active substance in Kwells tablets is hyoscine hydrobromide which temporarily reduces the effect of movement on the balance organs of the inner ear and the nerves responsible for nausea.

The history

 

Travel sickness is nothing new. In fact, in humans, it’s reportedly been around since the very first modes of transport were invented, apparently dating back to the Greek and Romans who are said to have been very familiar with the condition.1

In 300AD the Chinese called it ‘cart influence’ and ‘ship influence’ and the naval hero Admiral Nelson, who first dipped his toe in sea travel at the age of 12, was said to be a chronic sufferer.1

It’s common among the world’s population – according to some reports around 65% of people suffer from it2 – and women and children tend to suffer more although it’s not really understood why.3

Even animals suffer from it. Dogs, cats, horse, fish and amphibians are all said be prone to motion sickness.2

In the air

There’s nothing worse than feeling ill on a plane. You’re often cramped, aircraft toilets are the last place you want to be and there’s no opportunity to pull into the nearest layby – let alone the embarrassment of throwing-up in front of an audience of strangers!

Therefore, it’s best to do everything you can to prevent symptoms occurring in the first place. If possible, opt for a seat in the middle of the plane as this is where you’ll experience the least movement.5

A pillow or headrest will help to keep your head as still as possible and might even help you to nod off.5 Try to relax and keep calm by focusing on your breathing. You could also try carrying out a mental activity such as counting backwards from 100!Sucking a boiled sweet can ease the pressure on your ears during take-off and landing which may help to prevent or ease symptoms.

Riding the wave

Again, there’s no escape when you’re aboard a boat and choppy waters can make for an uncomfortable journey if you’re prone to motion sickness.

Avoiding alcohol and large meals before your journey is wise, particularly if you’re likely to encounter turbulent weather.6

On a boat trip, try to sit in the middle of the boat where you’ll feel less motion or head out on deck to get some fresh air. If you’re staying overnight, you could choose a cabin in the middle of the ship.3

Try to avoid areas where you can smell engine fumes as these types of odours can trigger motion sickness.3

Keeping your eyes closed or sleep. Listening to music or a podcast can be good distraction and a great way to zone out from the journey.3

On track

Some people find they’re less prone to travel sickness on trains as they’re often able to look out of the window more easily.

You may find sitting in a carriage near the front of the train where it’s more stable helps to stave off symptoms. You could also opt for a seat near the doors so you can experience fresh air every time the train stops.

Try to stay seated as much as possible so you feel less motion than you would standing and look out of the window and focus on the horizon if you do start to feel motion sickness creeping in. If self-help methods aren’t working Kwells Adults Travel Sickness 300 microgram tablets7 or Kwells Kids Travel Sickness 150 microgram tablets8 may be able to help.

The active substance in Kwells tablets is hyoscine hydrobromide. Hyoscine hydrobromide temporarily reduces the effect of movement on the balance organs of the inner ear and the nerves responsible for nausea. Because Kwells tablets melt in the mouth, absorption into the bloodstream is very rapid and they can be taken up to 20–30 minutes before travelling or at the onset of sickness.

Always read the label. If you have any doubts about using Kwells tablets correctly, seek the advice of your pharmacist or doctor.
