    bonnie for sea sickness?

    Someone posted to me to take bonnie for sea sickness before I went to bed. What is bonnie? Also, any other remedies you know that work other than dramamine, the patch or the wristband?

    Bonine is another brand of over the counter medication to prevent motion sickness. I personally have tried all of the above except the patch and prefer the wristband as it does not make me drowsy. I have also heard that taking ginger in some form (not sure what from) aslo works.

    Ginger works good too. You can take it in different forms - Ginger Pills, Fresh Ginger, Ginger Ale, Ginger Snaps..

    fish,

    If you opt for Bonine or the non-drowsy version of Dramamine, taking them before bed each night tends to mitigate any drowsiness. In fact, if it does make you drowsy, well, it will only help you have a good night's sleep.

    I tend to really feel the effects of sleep aids and even cold medications, and I couldn't really pick up any drowsiness from Bonine. Bonine costs about $8 or $9 for a package of 8 tablets, which is, coincidentally enough, exactly what you need for your cruise. Remember to start taking it the night before you sail. It's easier to prevent seasickness than to cure it once it hits.

    Enjoy!

    Bonine is not for me. Our whole family took it on our first cruise and it ruined the first day because we were total zombies. I wouldn't take it again, but have read where others have had no problem with it. Each day on the ship is too important to lay in a lawn chair and drool! LOL

    After 15 cruises and several snorkel and whale watching adventures, we swear by Bonine. Makes me a lot less drowsy than dramamine.

    if worried about how drowsy it might make you, try taking it at home before going.. then you'll know :)

    What about dramamine, the non-drowsy formula. Do you still get drowsy after taking it?

    I always take Bonine and have never felt drowsy. I take one each morning with breakfast as a preventative measure during a cruise. In the past I have used the patch but it makes your mouth very dry. I buy Bonine at Wal-Mart. It comes in a box of 8 tablets for under $3.00. Other pharmacies charge around $5.00.
