There is better anecdotal evidence that ginger capsules...or candy...works to alleviate motion sickness than there is for SeaBands. With SeaBands, I believe that the "placebo effect" is really what is prevalent...if you believe that they are going to work, then they probably will.

I think that you are confusing your drugs a little. Bonine is genrically known as meclizine, and general concensus is that it has a lower incidence of causing drowsiness than Dramamine, or dimenhydrinate. However, thee is a product known as Dramamine II, which, in actuality, is the same drug that is in Bonine. So, try sticking with a product the has the generic drug meclizine in it, if you want to lower the chances that it might cause drowsiness.

I hope this is the explanation that you were seeking! Happy cruising!
