I have always suffered from this whenever going on long journeys and do have a medicine. But am fed up of always taking it!

I have heard about a wristband (for kids!) that they wear to stop the sickness and to save taking medication.

Don't want to be a plonka 2funny and ask in a chemist for them if they really don't exist - but I've never seen one! Anyone know what I am after and if they work/where to get them from?

Thanx!

Yes, I've heard of them and they do exist. I think they put pressure on certain points on your wrist and help prevent the nausea/sickness. I believe you can get them from Chemists.

They are called Sea bands and I have used them for years. The acupressure point is what makes them work. You can wash them as they get sweaty!
