    The dose of caffeine is tiny. Travacalm is a great travel-sickness medication, but without the caffeine it would be overly sedating.

    I'm sorry, is it not okay to share an experience so the op can be aware it could possibly happen? I didn't say 'don't use it because it will do this.' I shared my experience, stated that I wouldn't give it to my kids (because I would be worried they'd be sensitive to caffeine, too), and said I'll be looking for something else.
    If I'm taking or giving something for the first time I don't mind knowing what experiences people have had. Travelcalm doesn't even have caffeine as an ingredient on the box. If it did, I wouldn't have used it.
    I know you're a doctor, but this is a forum...I can share my experience. I'm causing no harm by doing so.
