Boots Travel Calm Tablets
Advantages: They work for me
I seldom shop in Boots because I find the store very expensive. When I need any over the counter medicine type products I usually try my local Lloyds Pharmacy or my local Superdrug first. The only thing I buy from Boots on a regular basis is their travel sickness tablets. The tablets called Boots Travel Calm cost £2.49 for 12 tablets.
I have suffered from travel sickness all my life. Often children grow out of having travel sickness and my son used to suffer from travel sickness when he was a child but as a youth he is fine. Unfortunately I have always suffered from travel sickness and I certainly did not grow out of it.
I can drive anywhere without feeling sick but as soon as I get in the passenger seat of the car then that's it. I feel terribly sick and really ill. It is seldom that I actually throw up and usually with some fresh air I recover after 10 minutes or so. The feeling of travel sickness is truly awful, it really drains me of all my energy and
I feel worn out and quite ill. Travel sickness in my expereince is best avioded at all times.
The way I avoid travel sickness is to take these tablets. The tablets come in a little cardboard box. The box has instructions for use on it and inside the box there is a leaflet explaining what Travel Calms are and what they are used for. The leaflet also outlines the correct dosage and details of side effects you may experience.
Inside the box there is one little plastic type pack of the 12 tablets. To disperse the tablets you just push them through the plastic pack they are sitting in. The tablets are easy to disperse and then you just pop the rest of the unused tablets back in to the box.
The tablets contain the active ingredient of Hyoscine Hydrobromide 0.3mg. Travel sickness happens because your body is telling the vomiting centre in your brain that you are moving and your eyes that you are not. Hyoscine hydrobromide stops this message from being sent to the vomiting centre, therefore preventing you from being sick.
One of the effects of hyoscine hydrobromide is to dry up any fluids in your body and often after I take these tablets my mouth and throat feel really dry. Having a dry mouth and throat is preferable to having travel sickness.
Side effects associated with these tablets include drowsiness, dizziness and blurred vision. Fortunately I don't have blurred vision or dizziness when I take these tablets. As I said before I do get a dry mouth and throat and very often I feel a bit drowsy after taking the tablets. When flying I can often fall asleep even before the plane leaves the runway.
The tablets are quite small in size, completely round white coloured tablets. You can take them the night before you travel, 20 minutes before you travel and when you actually feel sick. I take one tablet just before travel and this is longlasting even on a 10 hour flight to Florida. My husband says I am a very boring person to travel with as I am usually asleep.
The tablets can either be swallowed with water or you can just let them dissolve in your mouth. The tablets don't in my opinion taste that unpleasant but usually I just swallow the one tablet I take with water.
Other brands of travel sickness tablets like Kwells, Joy Rides and Sturgeon all contain the same active ingredient hyoscine hydrobromide.
I am just sticking to my tried and tested Boots Travel Calm Tablets. They are easy to take, the side effects are not too bad and they are reasonable priced. Best of all they work for me.
