Dear B Saby,

Yes, prochlorperazine can help for motion sickness but it is not recommended in such a small child. You may try Tab. Avomine half to one hour before the time of the planned drive up the mountain. Half a tablet should be enough for his age. You may crush it and give it with either milk or water.

P.S. This treatment can cause drowsiness or extra sleepiness.
