Depends: If in your experience you get symptoms of motion sickness as soon as the plane starts moving, than you should take the pill 20 minutes prior to that event to allow it to enter your system. You just need the medications circulating prior to a likely motion sickness event.

I have a chiari malformation which is putting pressure in my spinal cord and causing it to leak fluid. Would motion sickness pills help with that?
No: That's sounds like you need chiari decompression surgery depending on your symptoms. I'm not sure what you mean by leaking fluid unless you have had surgery already and the wound is leaking. Either way, good luck!
Causes for vertigo? I have had vertigo since saturday afternoon, I went to the doctor yesterday since it has only gotten worse. They took my blood pressure and checked my ears, he just diagnosed me with vertigo and told me to take a motion sickness pill.
Yes: Scopolamine patches are fairly effective, but work best if applied the night before travel. All drugs in this class share side effects of dry mouth, constipation, and sedation. They may also potentiate the effects of alcohol or other sedating drugs. Check with your doctor for interactions with any other medications you are taking or other underlying medical conditions.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Jerky frame movements, rapidly flashing lights, fast action (like car chases), and movements like roller coaster or falling sequences can cause motion sickness in some people, especially if the visual takes up more & more of your field of vision in which you lose your fixed frames of reference and so your brain is confused about position and gravity.See 1 more doctor answer

Prevention: In a boat: look at the horizon or a land mass (island or shore), stay on deck rather than go below, eating lighter easily digestible meals. If motion sickness occurs, various medications may help. In a car or plane: look at horizon, do not read or look down excessively. Plane: sit over wings. Car: sit in front seat.
The best is Valium: Valium and other benzodiazepines are preferable to medications like Meclizine (antivert). Medicines like meclizine, bonine and dramamine (dimenhydrinate) are all based on the phenothiazine meds and were discovered as failed antipsychotics. They didn't help psychotic symptoms but made people less dizzy. Valium works great and the side effect profile is preferable so most ear specialists use these medications.See 1 more doctor answer
