the reason your insurance wont cover it is because it is OTC. That med has been around for eons and eons. Its used also for people with inner ear issues and vertigo (dizzyness). I used to take it all the time since i had inner ear issues for years (thankfully its now gone...what a nightmare that was).
anyway, take it and feel good about it. I honestly never knew it was good for seasickness. I am so happy about it, because i never felt any side effects!
I plan on the bracelets also...i get seasick when deep sea fishing or on twirly rides at disney, so this is a double checker for me!
