Joy Rides Travel Sickness Tablets contain the active ingredient hyoscine hydrobromide, which is used to prevent the feelings of sickness when travelling. They are most effective at preventing sickness when taken around 20 minutes before travel; however they can also be taken throughout a journey when you begin to feel sick. The dose of Joy Rides Travel Sickness Tablets may need to be repeated throughout longer journeys.
Travel sickness or motion sickness is believed to be a result of conflicting information received by the brain. It becomes confused with what the body senses is happening and what the eyes are seeing is happening. In the inner ear, there are 3 fluid filled canals called the vestibular system, which detect the changes in the body’s position. Motion sickness therefore occurs when the vestibular system sends messages to the brain that the body is being moved around, while the eyes are saying that the body is stationary.
The active ingredient Hyoscine hydrobromide is thought to prevent motion sickness by stopping the messages sent from the vestibular system from reaching an area of the brain called the vomiting centre, which co-ordinates the vomiting reflex and Hyoscine blocks the receptors called muscarinic (or cholinergic) that are found in the vomiting centre. This prevents the vomiting centre from sending nerve messages to the stomach that would normally cause vomiting. Hyoscine needs to be taken before travel to be most effective, as once feeling sick or vomiting has started it is more difficult to control, particularly with tablets that need to be kept down.

I can vouch for this products effectiveness against travel-sickness however, I find myself taking them at other times too to prevent nausea.I suffer with depression, and the anti-depressants have a nasty habit of making me feel sick - I can take these along-side the meds so that I can carry on with my day without throwing up.
My 5 year old and 3.5 year old both suffer from car sickness badly, and Ive been using these for quite a while. These definitely work, but I also get them to wear Sea-Bands as I feel better knowing two things are stopping them from feeling sick. What Ive found is that these really do need to be taken about 20-30 mins before travelling to work properly. They were fine on a 5 hr journey recently and didnt complain of nausea once!
Im currently in the process of learning how to fly. Unfortunately I get travel sick by just looking at a plane. This has led me to become somewhat of a connoisseur of travel sickness pills. After proving that most brands dont work, by either projectile vomiting all over my instructors, or wanting to go to sleep on their shoulder I decided to try joy rides.After I found an instructor who was willing to fly with me, (No mean feat, I had gained a reputation) I found they worked fantastically!So thank you joyrides! I can continue with my life long dream, and my instructors no longer have fly with me in fear.....or waterproofs!
Brilliant product. My children were always sick on journeys. Since using these we have had no problems with sickness at all. Great for all the family.
Was dreading going to a theme park with some collegues,as I get motion sickness on even tame rides.Followed the directions by taking two as we pulled into the car park.They worked an absolute treat. After the first ride, (which normally would have had me thowing up for the rest of the day),I didnt feel any nausea. This let me enjoy the day without ruining it for my mates. Even managed to have a large lunch and kept it down. These tablets do make your mouth very dry.
I travel frequently, via car and ferry and I would not go anywhere with out Joy Rides. Excellent value also very impressed with the speedy delivery service.
