Well everyones different. And dramamine don't do dick for me. The patch a guy gave me worked great.
Actually took me out of my sickness. And thats pretty much unheard of.
Yes, it's prescribed. So even if insurance doesn't cover it theres still the office visit I'd have to pay for before I could even get prescribed.
So if I've answered those topics, let's get some help, not b.s.
If you feel lile helping out and we can work something out perfect and thanks.
Please message me.

Sold my Parker. You can find me on the Red Rooster.
My understanding is that the patches are bad for people with high blood pressure. I think this is why thy are prescribed -- so that a physician can determine whether they are safe for an individual.

I wish it worked like that for me.
I couldn't take enough to keep me well. Lol. The patch works great for me tho.
How have you been getting them? If you go out a lot, I assume you take a lot.. just asking. I had vertigo and it's how I got them...unless it's a washing machine out there it's not that bad, sick wise for me. Also, 4 patches per box.

I never got sick before turning 40. Since it's been a crapshoot. It doesn't even have to be bad. I just dealt with getting sick the first few times. Then the next couple times tried dramamine, then boenine. Neither worked. While on a trip, sick , one of the guys on the boat offered me a patch. It took just under an hour to staighten me up. So at this point I want to have a few to take when I go.
What would you want for a box?

there was a long thread on here awhile ago about avoiding sea sickness. They talked about a pill you can get online that is the same active ingredient as the scopimine patch. Might check that out

Unless I am mistaken each patch can be used for 3 consecutive days as long as you do not take it off.

I found that the glue that holds the patch on is not good. They come off after showering or if the weather is hot and you perspire a lot. So I put a water proof bandage over the patch to keep it on.

Seeing as how it's a script I'm pretty sure what your proposing is illegal . That being said you shouldn't need to pay for a doctor visit .Just call your GP and ask for a script .

Bonines & dramimines both suck ass !! Go to the closest Walmart and get the equate brand motion sickness for less than $2 a box! I take 1 the day before the trip and 1 an hour before. Boom ! Done! No sleepiness, no cottonmouth, no Iill effects! It's easier on the stomach ,too!!

There are two different "Dramamine" pills: The 24-hour one has the same ingredient as Bonine (and works great for me). The other is a pill that you have to take a few times a day (gives me cotton mouth, drowsy, etc.). For me, the patch has some side-effects, too. Everyone should find what works for them and use it.
