Relief in Motion
Fast-acting Zentrip helps travelers prevent or alleviate motion sickness with easy-to-use medicated strips that dissolve on the tongue. Providing eight hours or more of prevention and relief — longer than the relief offered by liquids, pills, chewable tablets or other delivery systems — the convenient citrus-flavored strips additionally require no water. Zentrip’s main ingredient is meclizine hydrochloride, an anti-emetic that works by blocking a chemical messenger in the brain, which helps to reduce or prevent such symptoms of motion sickness as vomiting and nausea. The strips cause less drowsiness than other motion sickness products containing the same amount of meclizine, according to the manufacturer, Torrance, Calif.-based Sato Pharmaceutical, which adds that for best results, the medication should be taken about one hour before traveling. An eight-strip package retails for a suggested $4.99 to $5.99. To learn more, visit www.zentripsato.com.
