Joy-Rides travel sickness tablets relieve travel sickness by using the active ingredient hyoscine hydrobromide.
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.
