~Have you ever suffered from travel sickness~

Okay so first...sorry for the lack of posts. Things are sooo crazy here! My oldest has all her huge yr end projects due, final exams coming up and to ice the cake has seriously injured her knee (we have an emergency apt with a surgeon this week). Our middle daughter is busy busy with field trips and last min projects too. Then our youngest has had specialist apt (for her walking...or lack of walking properly), the activeness of a 3 yr old and she has had a fever and been sick the past bit.

Sooooo, that brings me to this post. I suffer HUGE from motion sickness until 3yrs ago :D I can now navigate, read, help the kids...it is awesome!! So, today when we were driving to our daughter's appointment (it was over an hour drive) I was thinking that I should share my findings with you all.

It's called transderm, it is a small patch that fits behind your ear...can last for 3 days. They are a bit pricey, I pay about $6. CAD for one (they come in a pkg of 2). I don't know about you but if you are that sick you'd pay anything to feel better at that point (so way nice to not go there at all). I love these patches (unfortunately kids can't use them), I keep one extra on hand and only use it for longer drives, it doesn't cause drowsiness...it is soooo amazing! They keep it behind the pharmacy area and it is in a tiny yellow box. Here is a link to tell you a bit more.

I hope this helps at least one of you!

Thanks so much Stephanie! Unless you have had motion sickness, you don't understand how miserable this can be. It can ruin you entire day! I am right there with you, and depend on Dramamine at times. I've never heard of Transderm, but I will be sure to check it out! Thanks for the advice!
Take care...Happy Summer!

Thanks for sharing. My husband gets motion sickness really bad like you too. Next time we go out to Hawaii we'll have to take some of these patches with us so I can drive the car too. THANKS AGAIN!
