How can I avoid dizziness?

If you’re feeling dizzy, try these tips that can help minimize it:

  • Cut out (or decrease) nicotine, caffeine, and salt. These products impair blood circulation, which increases dizziness.
  • If you’re travelling by air, ask if you can move to an area that has less motion like the middle of the plane, close to the wing.
  • If you’re travelling by car, call “shotgun!” Sitting in the passenger seat helps you anticipate upcoming motion, lessening the effects.
  • Before you go, take a dose of GRAVOLTM to help prevent dizziness due to motion sickness. If dizziness persists, see a doctor.

How can I treat dizziness?

If you’re already experiencing dizziness, here are several ways to help reduce the effects:

  • Keep a level head: avoid extremes when looking up, bending forward or turning and twisting your head.

  • Drink small amounts of clear liquids such as water, soda or non-acidic juice.
  • A dose of GRAVOLTM will help treat your dizziness due to motion sickness.
