Dramamine has always helped me with sea sickness.
I also get sea-sickness on a regular basis.....i have been fishing on boats since i was five... turned 64 dec 14th and still continue to get sea sick.. i have become so proficent it does not interfer with my temp or rhythm will stroking a tuna..... i have done much research and beleive that i have found possibly the "cure"..... It is called the coast guard cocktail..... got your attention yet???? you taKE PROMETHEZINE and mix with a sudafed.... the promethizine helps the nasuea and the sudaped keeps you awake.... it usually works make sure you get the sudafed from the drug store... its sold behind the counter as kids use it to make crystal.....you need to get a percription from your doc for the promethezine.... i usuallytake one prometh and one sud. about 1 hr before we leave and redose in 4-6 hrs..... i have had no illeffects and have only got sick once last season while in the fish well gutting tuna.....
I don’t go out on boats often as I mostly bank fish but on a charter while in Hawaii my buddy got sick and I was fine. I think the fresh air and distractions is what helped. Your mind is a very powerful tool. You’ll think it and it will happen
I have had success on shorter trips with lavender oil. A little dab behind each earlobe.
^^^You'll probably get a bunk room to yourself that way as well.
I would suggest getting the following (2) prescriptions from your doctor. It's almost a 100% guarantee to work for you.
a. Scopolomine Patch (Put on at least 4 hours before departure).
This medication takes care of the motion portion of seasickness.
This is an anti-nausea/vomiting medication. I'd take one, an hour or two prior to getting on the water, then as needed while you are at sea.
Hope this helps!
I know I recommend this regimen, for all my guys on our charters!
Cvs pharmacy just told me the other day that the scop patch has been recalled. Anyone get it recently? Need it for my buddy for his first overnight trip.
Just used mine on Friday and it was a life saver.
I use these..
The more you go out the better you will feel, try not to look down too much, when you tie a know look forward, I have found that looking down always makes it worse for me.
if you have had a Ear Infection, in the Past
Like Me, then the Pill Form Of The Patch, Is The only
Way Too Go.
I use the sea band pressure point wristbands and they work great for me.
TRY TRAVEL TIME AS GOOD AS SCOPACE AND LESS AFTER AFFECT BEST I HAVE FOUND SO FAR ANYONE FINDS A CURE LET ME KNOW ASAP PLEASE SMITTY
I joined the Navy in the early 90's and was seasick something awful for about a week. It slowly got better and eventually went away completely. I now very rarely get seasick. So the answer is yes but how many hours it will take I couldn't say.
Here is are some of the things I have learned over the years:
1) get the patch from your doctor - nothing else works for me.
2) do not drink coffee in the morning
3) take crackers and ginger ale with you
4) stay hydrated
5) don't be afraid to eat lightly throughout the day
As a physician, I've tried many ways to fight off sea sickness and this is the combination I use. I put the patch on at least 6 hours prior to leaving and replace the patch every 72 hours. I never put the new patch where the old patch was but change sides.
If I start to feel sea sick despite the patch, I will take a Zofran and in a few minutes, I'm better. I use the desolving formulation under my tongue rather then the regular pill since it works faster and lasts just as long. No side effects for me with the Zofran.
I made it half way thru page one, and started getting queasy, and I'm sitting in Tustin
This is back?
What is weed for 200.00, Alex!
