OTC advice on travel sickness

  • Alan Nathan

Abstract

Motion sickness includes all forms of travel sickness (e.g. sea-sickness, airsickness, car-sickness). It can be defined as a characteristic syndrome brought on by being transported by a means of conveyance (including fairground rides) as opposed to self-propelled motion, such as walking, running or cycling. The condition can also be caused by simulated motion, such as being in a flight simulator or watching wide-screen projected images.
