Know More about Motion Sickness & Nausea

Many people may experience motion sickness when traveling, which can include symptoms of queasiness, sweating, dizziness, pale skin, and vomiting. In fact, one in three people is susceptible to motion sickness. Over-the-counter products and medications are available at Walgreens in stores and online to help alleviate nausea and other symptoms associated with motion sickness.

What causes nausea?

Nausea is a common symptom of many conditions, rather than a health condition itself. Although having nausea is uncomfortable, it is usually not serious and goes away with time or once the cause is resolved. If you are experiencing nausea and vomiting for a prolonged period of time, contact your healthcare provider.

Possible causes of nausea can include:

  • Motion Sickness
  • Gastroenteritis (infection in the gastrointestinal tract) and other infections
  • Food Poisoning
  • Morning Sickness during pregnancy
  • Certain medications
  • Chronic health conditions such as GERD (reflux disease) and gastric ulcers
  • Migraines
  • Other health conditions like pancreatitis

When motion sickness occurs, it is thought that symptoms result from an imbalance in what you feel versus what you see while your body is sitting still but your surroundings appear to be moving.

What kind of medicine gets rid of nausea?

There are many different medicines for nausea relief offered over-the-counter and by prescription. Choosing an appropriate symptom treatment option depends on the cause of your nausea. If you’re experiencing nausea from motion sickness, some common ingredients in over-the counter medicine can include meclizine or dimenhydrinate for nausea relief. Nausea caused by certain foods or infection may be settled with other medications or products intended to coat the stomach, reduce overproduction of acid, or increase the speed of digestion. Ask your healthcare provider or Walgreens pharmacist to help you explore available anti-nausea products.

Types of nausea relief medicine

Walgreens offers a variety of over-the-counter medicine and products for nausea relief in stores and online. Oral antihistamines and antiemetics are commonly featured to alleviate nausea symptoms, particularly for motion sickness. These medications often have ingredients such as meclizine or dimenhydrinate, which can cause drowsiness.

Other products may be drug-free with natural ingredients or complementary therapies such as acupressure wristbands. Ginger is a common ingredient thought to settle a queasy stomach, which can be offered in capsules, gum, and lozenges. There are also topical roll-ons that can be applied to the skin behind the ear. If you’re not sure which product to choose, chat with a Walgreens pharmacist in store or online via Pharmacy Chat 24/7 to find which option may be most appropriate for you.
