I have tried the prescription patches and while they work well, I have to wear them for a week after I return due to vertigo. I switched to the "Less Drowsy" Dramamine several cruises back and have used it every time for 16 cruises. I take one before bedtime the night before I sail and then take 1 a day around dinnertime. You can take them every 12 hours if needed, but the 24 hour dose usually works fine for me. If I do have any drowsiness at all from them it is fine, since I take it late in the day.
