Steps to follow:

Sit in the central part of the vehicle where the least movement movements will occur. When traveling by car, you should occupy the front seat, i.e. the passenger seat.


Eat lightly, because a completely empty stomach can increase or worsen nausea and headaches, but overloading the stomach before leaving will be even worse.


Keep hydrated. This is very important to prevent dizziness, so you must drink often. It is very important not to drink alcohol before or during the trip.


It is important that car is ventilated without any strong odors as these cause nausea and upset us. In the case of travelling by sea, you can try avoiding dizziness by staying on the bow deck, breathing the sea breeze.


Make sure you are seated facing forward and stare at a high point to counteract the visual sensation of speed. For longer road trips, take frequent stops - and if the thought of a long trip seems unbearable and is causing you to worry it may be better to consult with your doctor or pharmacist before the trip.


Avoid other activities such as reading, watching movies on DVD, etc. because they will make you dizzy more easily.


The driver can help by making sure they go around corners gently, trying to avoid sudden movements and continuous changes of speed. Accelerating or braking especially worsens dizziness.


Making frequent stops to get some fresh air and stretch your legs will also be of great help to prevent dizziness when traveling.


If it's really bad then its probably best to take seasickness medications, such as the Biodramina. Consult your doctor or pharmacist about which one is the most suitable for you.


If you are already dizzy, try this:

  • Lie on your back (face up, and raise the legs, or support the head in a fixed position).
  • Keep looking at an angle of 45 ° above the horizon and look for landmarks in the distance without looking at nearby objects.
