It is not wise to give any human meds to dogs. I would discuss this with your vet.

I recommend not feeding your dog on long trips, only water.
frequent stops to the rest stops or forest preserve to get his legs on ground/ eliminate himself.
Use a crate.
If it is cool outside you can roll the back window down and cover the crate's door with a towel to minium the view of the motion he sees.
Also chew bone, or a kong stuffed with meat/ or peanut butter.
Instead of fast food stop at a grocery store or save the fast food to go outside and eat with the dog, pack him a light lunch like diced ham if he does not actually vomit on the road.
