Can anyone tell me the best motion sickness pills? Which one doesn't knock you - yet works well to quell the stomach?
We are taking ginger capsules as a preventative. However, my husband get's sea sick very often.
Glad you are taking the ginger capsules. They are effective and have the fewest side effects.
I usually take Bonine. It works well for me and does not make me sleepy. Dramamine knocks me out.
Different medications work differently on different folks, though, so you might want to give these a try before you leave... pick a day when you're not going anywhere and take one or the other, and see how it affects you. If you don't like the side effects, then on a different day when you're not going anywhere, try the other one and see about it.

Throwing up works for me!
Seriously, I have never used anything although I am prone to seasickness on smaller vessles. I have not been on one less than 90,000 tons, so I haven't needed it yet, but I am reading all the posts - JUST IN CASE!
I had forgotten about the wrist bands we have them too.
Thanks for reminding me to take them 1 day ahead that is good
If nothing else works it does help to put a lemon slice between your teeth and front lip
I know this sound really strange and doesn't take all that great - but if I get sick I'll try anything - ran into an old Naval officer aboard one time and he told me this trick - it worked well for my friend
Another thing that I did one time year's ago when we were 100 miles off the eye of a hurricane on one of the Cunard ships that had the stabilizer's go out was to drink a "stabilizer" it's port wine and brandy - sip slowly - it worked like a charm for me.
To be serious, I use the wrist bands, called seabands. I can not take the different medications, and these have worked for me for many years. You must place them on the wrist in the correct position for them to work right. It is important to read the dirctions very carefully.

Re: Motion sickness best pills
I usually take bonine. Have heard good about the ginger capsules, but beware, if you have an irritable bowel, you will pay the price in that way. Also, taking too much ginger can make you sick, so just like medications, make sure you use ginger with caution (don't go overboard.)
