    Poor guy, indeed! It can be really fightening to a child who’s no ‘used to’ getting sick!
    Our oldest is like that. He can’t do anything on road trips without getting sick, and even commuting in the city last week he got queesy on the ride home (thankfully no vomit, since I was stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic with no hope of pulling over)
    Sadly, I too was that child. My poor parents. Their poor car.

    @Barbi: We only really took three trips per year when I was young, usually all in the summer- twice per summer we’d go to the lake, a two hour drive, and once a year we’d drive about 16 hours to visit relatives two provinces over. My parents would usually pack lots of grocery bags for me to use, lol.
    But after one terrible incident involving a 15 minute drive in the dark, no bags, and a stubborn Dad who wouldn’t pull over for me (I was old enough, and experienced enough in my motion sickness to give fair warning)…let’s just say it was very, very similar to your story, and I was seated right behind the driver. Not pretty. From that night until my motion sickness disappeared, I was drugged (gravol) every time we went anywhere! I would miss the “road” part of every trip on account of being “knocked out”.
    As for my son, we haven’t used anything on him yet. I prefer to not medicate for problems that don’t absolutely require it, and we have yet to get to that point with him.
    We manage his motion sickness with preventative actions- no reading (or comics, or drawing, etc), no personal video games, etc, while driving. He can play with toys without getting sick, but often will just sleep instead. If he feels sick, he looks out the FRONT window, and we’ll open a window for some fresh air.
    My sister in law has had pretty good results using “Sea Bands”(an accupressure wrist band).
    I hope your little guy’s experience was isolated and that incident wasn’t the start of being a car sick kid!
