An Iranian chewing gum for motion sickness!


If you are one of those people who get nauseous during car rides, flights and especially boat trips, then this recent invention is perfect for you.
A team of researchers lead by Mohsen Sadatrezaei from the Islamic Azad University School of Pharmaceutical Sciences (Tehran, Iran) has developed a medicated gum that will alleviate motion sickness sooner.

1. What causes motion sickness?


Motion sickness is thought to occur when there is a conflict between what your eyes see and what your inner ears -which help with balance- sense. Your brain receives a jumble of contrasting information, which is thought to bring on the symptoms of motion sickness.

So basically, the latter occurs when your inner ear senses motion but your eyes cannot tell you are moving.

2. Conventional treatment

When you have a mild motion sickness, you can simply change your seat or lie down. You can even gaze at the horizon or listen to some music in order to distract yourself.

In more serious cases, medication is needed. And among the drugs that are used is dimenhydrinate, an anti-histaminic.

3. The anti motion sickness chewing gum
 
This medicated gum is made of dimenhydrinate. According to the researchers, the main active ingredient is absorbed into the bloodstream through the cheek.

Sadatrezaei stated that the most challenging part was to mask the bitter taste of the active ingredient. And in fact, the team was successful in creating a product that is easy to chew, well absorbed with an acceptable taste.

This formula is yet to be commercialized but looks very promising, not only in the treatment of motion sickness but also in other conditions where other active ingredients might be incorporated into a chewing gum!

So can you imagine having the pleasure to chew on all your medications?

Is the % of absorption through the cheeks similar as to that of let's say when we ingest a gravol pill? Given that they have the same active ingredient. Cz I always die from motion sickness:p
However, the idea of a gum as a medicine is not really smart for it might let people chew on their meds unconsciously. An official pill can scare people from its side effects, but no one would read a side effect of a gum!

According to the researchers, the absorption is much faster through the cheeks and that's what's interesting about this gum. It can cure the motion sickness much sooner.
Regarding your view on having medications in forms of chewing gum, you're absolutely right. It is definitely risky. However, some pills are very hard to swallow, with a horrible taste. So maybe in some way it can work. I guess we should wait and see...
