Skip the meds, drink heavily before the flight (esp. vodka martinis) and then during takeoff, constantly remind yourself that flying is way safer than driving. If you are still nervous after take-off, keep reminding yourself that flying is typically exteremely safe. Then allternate waters with vodka tonics. Works for me every time! Good luck!

Option 1 - Have a couple of drinks and relax

Option 2 - Hop in the car and drive

You're going to Vegas baby - suck it up and just hope that if your plane is going to crash that it will be the one coming home - and not on the way there.

Movies/TV's on your laptop. Makes any flight go much quicker than it really is. If flying to Vegas, get some Vegas movies.

Excuse me but since BF isn't here to respond in her usual direct fashion..

Go back to your doctor and explain your problem. DO NOT drink on meds especially anything that is supposed to make you relax. It may have adverse reactions which the rest of the passengers may not want to witness.

I tolerate flying and Ger has seen me many times doing deep breathing exercises during take off and landings - and questions me each time why I always take the window seat. LOL. It's a control issue I need to work thru...
