In brief: Not indicated
Gravol (canada)/dramamine (us)/dramin(brazil): dimenhydrinate is a salt of two drugs: diphenhydramine, and 8-chlorotheophylline often used for motion sickness etc.
..And is indicated in us for age 2 and up. Since you mentioned gravol, i assume u r from canada--i don't know the approved age for use over there. Kids <2 yrs of age often dont suffer motion sickness much. Consult your doc. Good luck.

In brief: Avoid if possible
Gravol is a medicine for motion sickness, nausea and vomiting.
Like all medicines for children, it is best to have the child's doctor tell you if that medicine is right for your child. In addition, it is always best to avoid medicine in young children unless absolutely needed. This medicine is in a class that can have serious side effects, so the need should outweigh the risks.
