Meds and Car Sickness?

Hi everyone! My 5 year old has been on Quillivant XR for about a month. GREAT results, with minor side effects. A slight decrease in appetite, and she's taking longer to settle down to sleep at night. Nothing major.

However, on the way back from the neurologist yesterday, she threw up in the car. Its a 50 minute ride. Same thing happened about two weeks ago, we were visiting a friend who lived about 30 miles away, and she threw up on the sidewalk as soon as she got out of the car. At the time, I chalked it up to a stomach bug. But after yesterday, it seems like too much of a coincidence.

She has never been car sick before. We've driven 3 hours to go camping, 2+ hours to go to Great Wolf Lodge, with no problems. Could the car sickness be related to the meds? And if so, what do you suggest? Dramamine? Some of those motion sickness wrist bands? The Quillivant is working so, so, so well for her. I would hate to stop just for the 2 or so times a month we take long car rides.

Dramamine doped my daughter up. I swear by the wrist bands , even its placebo for her or psychological, I dont care cause it works.
