Hi Cheryl,

Ginger and other natural remedies are great if you want to braid your hair,
wear a sarong and live in Byron Bay. If you actually wish to enjoy your
holiday/pelagic the only real answer to motion sickness is DRUGS!

My ritual is, breakfast (wheatbix) and coffee 2 hours before boarding.
2 Dramamine 1 hour before boarding.
Gingernut biscuits during the day, along with other food to "snack" upon. I
also take sports drinks to replenish the system.

Drink heaps as the Dramamine dehydrates you (also you may feel sleepy around
midday), so take extra water if its not available. This does mean you have
to visit the toilet a few times though. 

Have fun!!

Hi folks

Our Easter will involve a flight, some ferry
crossings, a possible half day boat trip and a longer
boat trip (off to Tassie, a first for us).

I know sometimes people mention 'crystallized ginger'.
Problem is ginger tends to set off my gag reflex, its
possibly 'in my head' due to some rough boat trips as
a kid and using that to try counteract the
seasickness! And just seeing someone else throw up
sets me off.

Does Ginger Beer actually help? I have not tried that.

What other options are available that people recommend
based on experience? I have been having a look at the
archives. I thought there was a fairly recent topic on
seasickness/Pelagics but I can't find it. I am not
opposed to taking a pill, I just aren't familiar with

Thanks in advance.
