In brief: Symptom or underlyin

Unless medically contraindicated: take half dose immodium-ad prophylactically prior to trip.
But the real issue is the underlying anxiety about travel/flying, conflict with travel companions. All trips? Vacation? Business? Family reunions? Examine with greater attention to the details what the contributing ingredients may be.

Try auricular acupuncture to decrease the anxiety. The small needles can be kept in place for a week & are effective as long as they are in.
