I have a few long car rides ahead of me, and I get so bored easily! I would love to read in the car, but get motion sickness pretty quickly this way (nausea, headache, etc.)
I've heard of Dramamine- does this really work??
Yes, it works for me but also makes me very drowsy as PPs have said. If I'm not actively doing something I will pass out for hours.
Dramamine doesn't do anything except make me sleepy.
Bonine, on the other hand, works wonders. I took it last time I went on a cruise and didn't have one second of seasickness (and I am prone to motion sickness).
It works for me, I have to take it otherwise. . . .
I find taking just one does not make me sleepy, I took two once and felt like I was in a coma
Both dramamine and non-drowsy dramamine put me to sleep within hours. Bonine is even worse for me. Once DH and I took some on a trip to Disney world. We were so tired, we came back to our room at 7 pm and slept for like 14 hours straight. On our last cruise, we split a bonine pill in half and that helped some, but still made me sleepy.
On my next cruise, I'm going to try ginger pills. Both Mythbusters and Food Detectives have shown that these have some anti-nausea protection and it doesn't seem to make me sleepy.
