What causes motion sickness?

Motion sickness can occur when the brain registers a mismatch between reality and expected reality. For example, if you’re sitting still in a car but your eyes perceive motion, your body senses a conflict and you can start to feel queasy.

What are the symptoms of motion sickness?

• Nausea
• Feelings of warmth
• Sweating
• Hypersalivating
• Stomach awareness
• Vomiting (in extreme cases)
• Drowsiness

Common motion sickness medications

Your clinician will determine which (if any) motion sickness treatment is medically appropriate for you based on your symptoms and health history. If you're prescribed medication, pick it up at a pharmacy of your choice. Choose Amazon Pharmacy for free delivery and transparent Prime pricing.

Frequently asked questions
Is this treatment right for me?
This treatment may be right for you if:
• You have motion sickness or want to prevent future motion sickness

• You’re not pregnant or nursing
How can I reduce motion sickness naturally?
Some behavioral modifications can work to reduce the conflict between what your eyes are seeing and what your inner ear (vestibular sysem) is sensing. Clinicians recommend the following travel tips to reduce motion sickness:
• Change your posture to keep your head and shoulders still when you're in motion

• Avoid reading or looking at screens in moving vehicles

• Focus on a stable horizon or an unmoving object in the distance

• In cars, choose the driver's seat, or sit in the passenger seat and stare at the road as if you're the driver

• In boats, stick to the lower deck or midship cabins

• In trains and buses, choose a forward-facing seat

• In planes, choose a seat over the front edge of the wing
There's also some evidence that both ginger and acupressure on the P6 acupressure point on the inside of the wrist can alleviate the nausea associated with motion sickness.
Can I get motion sickness in virtual reality (VR)?
Yes. When you experience motion sickness from a VR headset, it's called VR sickness or cybersickness. Cybersickness symptoms include nausea, dizziness, and disorientation.
Is there a cure for motion sickness?
Though there's no cure for motion sickness, you can become desensitized to certain stimuli from repeated exposure. For example, the habituation training used for military pilots has success rates above 80%.
What types of visit can I have?
Video visits are available in all 50 states and D.C. Message-only visits are available in 34 states. To see your visit options, first choose your state.
Can I use my health insurance to pay for a visit and/or medication?
Amazon Clinic doesn't accept health insurance for visits at this time. You can submit a claim to your insurance provider for reimbursement, but we can’t guarantee they’ll reimburse you.

If you normally use insurance to pay for your medications, you can do that with medications prescribed through Amazon Clinic. Amazon Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans. For other pharmacies, please talk with your pharmacy directly about insurance coverage. The cost of medication isn’t included in the cost of your visit.
How does Amazon Clinic protect my health information?
Amazon Clinic protects your health information by strictly following the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA governs what Amazon Clinic and your healthcare providers can do with your medical information, as well as your contact and payment information. Amazon Clinic doesn’t and will never sell your personal information. Learn more on our privacy page.
