Are you ready for your winter travels? Did you pack all your clothes, shoes, outdoor gear, toiletries, medicines... but what about the Dramamine®? Motion sickness can occur in kids and adults, and it can occur in any type of moving vehicle -- cars, boats, planes, trains, you name it. I suffered from motion sickness as a child -- my poor mother always had to ask for extra airsick bags on the plane!
Traveling by boat can be a wonderful adventure -- as long as your stomach cooperates!
I still suffer from motion sickness (not so much on planes anymore but occasionally in cars and always on boats), so I know first hand how awful it can be. I always carry some Dramamine with me just in case the nausea and dizziness become too overwhelming -- and now, with new Dramamine® Less Drowsy, I don't have to deal with the grogginess. Fortunately my kids don't suffer as much as I do, but 3Po is starting to feel carsick on our road trips to Tahoe, so I'm glad I can give them Dramamine® for Kids if they need it. It's so easy to keep some in the car or in your purse, and you can avoid so many (literally) sticky situations!

Dramamine®, the leading brand of motion sickness relief for adults, is expanding its line just in time for the Holiday and Winter travel season to include Dramamine® for Kids. Also new to the line is Dramamine® Less Drowsy, which offers the same great relief as original, but with of drowsiness, an unwanted side effect.
Dramamine® for Kids treats symptoms on the spot, relieving nausea, dizziness and vomiting and prevents motion sickness before it happens. Moms trust Dramamine®, believe it is safe, and feel comfortable giving it to their kids. Dramamine® for Kids comes in a safe, precise children’s dose, avoiding the need to cut adult tablets.
For adults, Dramamine® Less Drowsy relieves motion sickness symptoms with less drowsiness for up to 24 hours with only one tablet.
Motion sickness is a problem for both adults and kids alike. According to an Omnibus Study in June 2011, 34% of households with children ages 2-12, have a child with motion sickness. This is three times the rate for adult motion sickness (10% of households.) Motion sickness is most prevalent in cars, followed by airplanes and boats. Typical symptoms are nausea, dizziness, and vomiting.
“When a family member gets sick on vacation, it’s a problem for the whole family,” says Madeline Blaize, Assistant Brand Manager for Prestige Brands. “Dramamine® for Kids and Dramamine® Less Drowsy can help prevent the problem, allowing everyone to enjoy that long awaited summer trip.”
Dramamine® for Kids comes in a safety travel case with 8 chewable tablets that have a great-tasting grape flavor. Dramamine® Less Drowsy is available in an 8 count travel vial.
