    Has anyone tried these: Eagle Creek Motion Bands

    I am looking for something while driving.

    I picked up some pills, but they say just "less drowsy." That wont work for the driver....ie: me.

    I have used them on cruises and they do work as long as you find your pressure point. They are really good and I recommend them :)

    My DW always wears similar ones on our cruises and they seem to work.
    Just how they work is beyond me but they seem to do the trick in her case.

    This is certainly positive news. I may actually have to buy a pair now. Thanks for sharing with me.

    I don't get motion sick on rides or things like that, but my Mom and I get very very carsick :( I don't know why, but it is horrible. I never understood how I could go on a roller coaster, but not take a ride in the country

    So long story short, if they work please let me know :D

    From what I understand from class, it's mixed signals in a car. Your body feels relatively stable, but your eyes see that you are moving. Hence the mixed signals.

    I have severe car sickness too.

    I was once told to sit on newspaper, unsure if it helps. Beth use anti sickness patches that go behind her ear. She uses them for drooling so unsure how affective they are as anti sickness. They are called scopoderm
