Answer

Consultations are rarely necessary. Nearly all motion sickness can be prevented or treated with standard behavioral and pharmacological interventions. If standard treatments are unsuccessful and the condition is impacting important aspects of the patient’s quality of life, the case can be discussed with an expert in the field. Typically, flight surgeons who specialize in aeromedical conditions, as well as otolaryngology, neurology, or neuro-otology physicians, have experience with these cases and may accept referrals.
