Some drugs may have Authority Required (Streamlined) status which does not require an explicit approval from Medicare, instead the doctor can use the Authority code found in the published Schedule for a given drug/indication. Make sure your child’s head is well-supported in her car seat to prevent her from moving her head too much. Don't eat a heavy meal before travelling. Light, carbohydrate-based food like cereals an hour or two before you travel is best.

Authority to prescribe an Authority medicine is granted for specific indications and/or for certain patient circumstances. Authority may be obtained by telephone to Medicare Australia (known as "phone approval") or in writing from an authorised delegate of the Minister for Health. Try a cool flannel on your forehead, try to get fresh air on your face and do your best to find a way to rinse your mouth to get rid of the taste. Remember, if you give children medicines which cause drowsiness they can sometimes be irritable when the medicines wear off.

If possible, try putting your child to bed before you start your journey and transfer your sleepy toddler into her car seat without (hopefully) waking her up. Or try coinciding your journey with nap or sleep time. Some toddlers fall asleep the minute they hit the road! Patients may complain of nausea and vomiting, pallor, sweating, headache, dizziness, malaise, increased salivation, apathy, drowsiness, belching, hyperventilation, and stomach awareness. Toddlers of all ages respond to music. If it is something she’s familiar with, it’s more likely to distract her from feeling ill. Try putting on a well-loved CD of nursery rhymes or sing a few favourites. Try putting a protective sun-shade on the window on your child’s side of the car to help keep them looking forwards and also protect them from bright sunshine. 7. Use music as a distraction Look outside the vehicle instead of reading or looking at a screen, for example, look out the window, or focus on the horizon if travelling in a boat.

Hyoscine, or scopolamine, patches are suitable for adults and for children over 10 years old. The medicine is absorbed through your skin, although this method of medicine delivery is slow so the patch works best if applied well before your journey. Keep your car cool and well ventilated – open the windows if possible - and make sure your child is not too warm. 4. Eyes on the horizon Some PBS medications are restricted and require prior approval from Medicare before a doctor is able to prescribe them on the PBS. This prior approval to prescribe grants the doctor the Authority to prescribe the desired medicine and have it funded under the PBS.Lay down if you can or sit in a stable position using a headrest. Depending on the vehicle, sit facing forward and in a seat where it will be less bumpy. In a car or bus, sit at the front; if flying, sit over the airplane wing. Metoclopramide is a tablet used to speed up the emptying of your tummy. Slow emptying of the tummy is something that happens when you develop nausea and vomiting, so metoclopramide can help prevent this. It prevents nausea and vomiting quite effectively in some people. It can occasionally have unpleasant side-effects, particularly in children (in whom it is not recommended). Metoclopramide is often helpful for those who tend to have gastric reflux, those who have slow tummy emptying because of previous surgery, and those who have type 1 diabetes. Your GP will advise whether metoclopramide is suitable for you. Domperidone Breathe deeply and slowly and, while focusing on your breathing, listening to music. This has been proved to be effective in clinical trials. Try to sleep - this works mainly because your eyes are closed, but it is possible that your brain is able to ignore some motion signals when you are asleep.

It is advisable not to watch moving objects such as waves or other cars. Don't look at things your brain expects to stay still, like a book inside the car. Instead, look ahead, a little above the horizon, at a fixed place. Put a sun-shade on the window on your child’s side of the car to help her look forward and to protect her from the heat of the sun.

Miscellaneous

Close your eyes (and keep them closed for the whole journey). This reduces 'positional' signals from your eyes to your brain and reduces the confusion. Try to prevent your child’s head from moving too much by making sure it is well-supported. 9. Do your pre-travel prep Try listening to an audio book with your eyes closed. There is some evidence that distracting your brain with audio signals can reduce your sensitivity to the motion signals. Avoid heavy meals and do not drink alcohol before and during travelling. It may also be worth avoiding spicy or fatty food. Avoid strong smells, particularly petrol and diesel fumes. This may mean closing the window and turning on the air conditioning, or avoiding the engine area in a boat.
