Falling asleep is my default mode when traveling. As soon as the vehicle gets going, I would almost always find myself drifting off somewhere else. I’ve slept on cars, airplanes, vans, buses, FXs, and even in the MRT… while standing up (back when I was working 16-hour shifts!). I’m a serial sleeper so I never really had issues when traveling. But I know this isn’t the case for many, and it certainly wasn’t the case of my younger self.
When I was in grade school, I fondly remember my mom having a plastic bag whenever we go on field trips. Long trips on buses were not my thing, and I would find myself dizzy and needing White Flower right in the middle of our travels. She would also make me pop a Bonamine tablet just to keep things at bay. I eventually overcame it when I was in my teenage years, but I know myself well enough to avoid anything that would make me nauseous. Even now that I no longer experience massive motion sickness, I always try to watch myself, keeping a tablet or two of Bonamine in my stash… just in case.
Why should Bonamine be your Travel Buddy?
Bonamine (Meclizine HCI) is a household name when it comes to fighting motion sickness. It is actually an antihistaminic and anticholinergic medicine. It controls dizziness and eliminates other signs of motion sickness. Since it has antihistamine components, chances are, you’ll feel sleepy upon taking it, so it is not advisable if you’re going to drive.
While I may not need to take it every time, I highly suggest having it on your stash especially if you’re going on long travels or if you just want to be on the safer side. It can also come in handy if you’re traveling with friends or family who might use some help.
