Curing motion sickness

I was hoping to go on my senior trip this year, but there's one thing stopping me: the knowledge of my inability to withstand traveling. I seriously can't last more than 2 hours in a vehicle.

Last month I went with my class to a Renaissance Faire in southern Pennsylvania, and it took 4 hours to get there. I was asleep for about an hour and a half, and, had it not been for the movies they played, I would have went crazy.

I was so sick I thought I was going to vomit - I didn't even eat when we stopped for food on the way home.


I live up in northern Pennsylvania, near the border, and the class tirp is to Ocean City, Maryland. There is no way I will make it...I'll drown in my own vomit.

Is there anything I can eat, any medications I can take, or any "mental calisthenics" I can do to keep the contens of my stomach inside me?

Re: Curing motion sickness

I also get motion sickness. I usually take a natural approach and take ginger vitamins that I get in the vitamin section in my grocery store. Pharmacies will also carry it. It helps alot.
