"Daddy, I need to throw up!"
How many times did my poor father hear that on our 1970's road trips. I was always getting car sick. (I still do today if I try to read in the car, or even glance at a map.) One time he was so mad at me, because he stopped, but I didn't actually throw up, and we missed the ferry crossing we were heading for. Oops!
If you have a child (or grown-up!) with a sensitive tummy, Gravol can be your best friend.
Gravol™ Quick Dissolve Chewables are available for both children and adults, and prevent and treat nausea, vomiting and dizziness due to motion sickness. Chewables are easy to take while in the car and also come in yummy flavours - orange for adults and cherry for kids, to satisfy even the pickiest of tastes. If taste-free options are preferred, Gravol™ Liquid Gels are also a great choice.
Is the driver concerned about experiencing tummy trouble as well? Gravol™ Natural Source™ Ginger Lozenges require no water to take, and most importantly, are non-drowsy. I know, for me, Gravol normally puts me right to sleep. I've been known to pop one as a sleeping pill. But these natural ginger options just calm my tummy while leaving me fully alert.
In addition to preventing potential stomach issues, be sure to plan for the road trip itself and the extended hours of travel while crowded in a car. Gravol.ca offers quick travel planning tips that will help provide a smooth and comfortable ride for all. For instance, be sure to plan out bathroom and meal breaks, with an eye to facilities available along your route. And have easy and nutritious snacks available to keep everyone going between meal stops.
With Gravol™ on your side and a little preparation, there’s no stopping you on any summer road trip! Now pick your destination, get the family in the car, and set off to make some great family memories this summer. Enjoy!
