Anyone use the transderm patches? Wondering how bad the side effects really are.
RE: Dizziness, drowsiness, and dry mouth. Also, how bad is it if I have a glass of wine at dinner with this patch? What happens when I take a shower and it gets wet. I only have 2 for the whole week. Each one is supposed to last 3 days. Do you think I should get more? Any adivce would be great. Thanks for taking the time,
There were 8 of us on the conquest and about 4 of us done the patch. I myself ended up taking it off because of the side effects it caused me. I was sick with a headache and dry mouth and an upset stomach. but the others did just fine. they even drank all of the special drinks of the day with no problem.
I have used them for 20 years and have had no sode effects, but they have to be changed every 3 days. It is fine in the shower & swimming. I don't know about the effect of alcohol, you might check with a dr.
I've heard from a few cruisers that Bonine doesn't seem to have the side effects that the patch and other remedies seem to have. I'm not prone to seasickness, but think I'll take *both* just in case...along with some ginger root capsules.....better safe than missing even one second of my cruise!
