How awful for your DD, I was the same until my teens - tablets didn't work at all, used to feel sick before the car got off the drive . The only thing I can suggest is lots of boiled sweets (barley sugar used to be the cure didn't it??) and ventilation, although if she's on a coach that might not be easy. Is it possible to ask the driver if she can sit near the front or at least away from the engine noise/vibrations? Also, remind her to keep looking at the horizon and not to put her head down to read. looking out the window really seems to help. Good luck!
Travel bands work a treat for both my kids (and me, if I'm a passenger). They come in child and adult size, at 10 she may need either size, so try them on before you buy them. You can get them in a chemist or health shop.
Have you tried ginger? They're a really effective anti-emetic, and they work where other stuff has failed for lots of people! Also, they can be eaten either as lumps, or in biscuits, so are good for children.
My daughter has just travelled to Spain and didn't even feel sick in the taxi to the airport (unheard of) and although felt a little queasy on landing was not sick and got over the nausea very quickly. It is for over 10s only.
what about these preggie pops? says they work for travel sickness too.
i was dreadful as a child and stugeron used to work for me. DD1 isn't great either but seems to cope with the general remedies of sitting at the front, looking out, high booster seat, lots of water, no reading/looking down, distraction, ventilation, very light food (no cheese or chocolate) etc...
