Has anyone used Piriton (or similar) to treat travel sickness?

We're travelling down to Somerset from York on Friday (5 hour journey). We plan to travel in the wee small hours so our two DDs can sleep most of the way, but DD2 (17 months) gets travel sickness and I want to take as many precautions as I can.

She wears the wristbands and we have Nelson's Travella tablets. With her being so young, regular travel sickness meds are not an option.

I heard that Piriton can be used as a travel sickness treatment. Has anyone used this and does it work?

Also, any other tips gratefully received!

has worked well for us in the past. Not sure if its just that it sends them to sleep or something more clinical!
