We got the patch through our dr also for the upcoming cruise on Oct 2nd. I've never used it before and on my first cruise, I noticed that bonine wasn't strong enough, so I thought I would try this. I sure hope that the side effects aren't too bad. I'll be putting them on for my train ride into NYC, so I can get a head start of getting rid of the side effects before the embarkment on Tuesday. We're staying overnight in NYC and so I hoped that this would work. Cutting it in half may be an idea if a full one is too much. Also, I'll bring some dramamine just in case I have to stop using it.
Thanks for the posts.
