Default Can Bonine and Dramamine be mixed in same day?

I get what my Dr. calls the "cat's reaction" from a lot of drugs that normally make people sleepy (e.g., Nyquil)...instead I get nervous and jumpy. I tried Bonine once and it caused this reaction and I couldn't sleep the whole night. Since then, I've used Dramamine a few times.

I felt a little sleepy with the Dramamine and kind of woozy. I was thinking of taking the Bonine during the day when I'm active and using the Dramamine at night so the Bonine doesn't interfere with my sleep. I wouldn't be taking them together but in the same day. Is there any reason not to mix these two drugs in a 24 hour period?

I don't know if Bonine and Dramamine can be taken 12 hours apart or so... if I were you, Maria, I wouldn't risk it, especially considering your previous reactions to these meds. Have you considered non-drug seasickness preventatives? For example seabands or ginger pills. These might be things to try.

Cheers,

Drug interactions (especially when you have abnormal drug reactions) is not something you should seek advice off a web message board for. You need to discuss this with your own physician who is familiar with your past drug reactions.

That's very good advice PapaBill, wish I'd thought to say that.
