Question Anxiety in Car

I know I have seen several posts and suggestions on the forum for dealing with anxiety in the car. Believe me I have tried them all, crate, thunder shirt, relaxation stuff (rescue remedy), herbs, Dramamine, and Benadryl. My next step is to get medication from the vet and I really do not want to drug her to that extent. So my question is for a 6yr old hav that travels round trip 32 miles each way twice a day very day, how bad is it for her to pant and tremble for at least the first 20 miles in the a.m. Am I overreacting because I worry about how up-set she gets? She has been doing this drive with me 5 days a week since she was 10 weeks old. Initially, the car did not bother her, but she had a tummy upset on a trip home from Portland and since that trip she gets very agitated in the car. Help Please!!

Linda & Sasha
