- vertigo). Other common signs are sweating and a general feeling of discomfort and not feeling well (malaise). These symptoms usually stop when the motion that causes it ceases. But this is not always true. There are people who suffer symptoms for even a few days after the trip is over. Antihistamines are often used to prevent and treat motion sickness. They are thought to do so by calming the stimulation of the inner ear. Examples of antihistamines used for this purpose include meclizine (Bonine, Antivert, Dramamine). They are most effective when started best well before the motion begins. Another class of medications (belladonna) used to prevent motion sickness is represented by the scopolamine skin patch (Transderm Scop) which is applied behind the ear 4 hours before the motion activity is to start.
