End Couples Vacation Travel Dampening Seasickness

Do you get seasickness when you cruise on your travel? What do you do to prevent this couples vacation dampening event? What are some sea sickness cures?

I answered this question on a friends blog and thought it might help someone here too. The question was what do you do to get over sea sickness on cruises?

I have had motion sickness since I pass out while swinging on one of those old really high swings. I got dizzy and fell out backwards. I have had motion sickness ever since. I couldn’t travel in the back seat of a car, sit in a rocking chair, go on amusement rides or watch a movies where it moved really fast. My husband loves cruises but I used to just hate going but I went  for him. I tried a verity of sea sickness cures.

Motion sickness medication which included:
Dramamine
Pepto Bismol
Meclizine/Bonine

Motion Sickness Gadgets:
Magnets-magnetic bands
Patches for sea sickness
Acupressure wristbands

Motion Sickness Home Remedies:
Gingerale
Ginger candy
Ginger tea
Suck on a lemon
Eat some olives
Eat lightly – don’t eat til full
Drink coke
Nibble on soda crackers

I have talked to many people and they all seem to have a different results using the methods listed above. They all swear by the method that they are using. I don’t know if that means that it is somewhat physiological as I have been told before or not. I just know when I am seasick I am really nauseous. I think you need to try different methods and talk to your doctor until you find the one that works for you.
On one ship I was so sick they gave me Meclizine, often sold under the brand name Bonine. Guess what, end of motion sickness with no hangover, heavy head syndrome or feeling like I was drugged. I am not in the medical profession and I don’t know if it would work for you or would be safe for you but it changed my traveling life. You can get it from the pharmacist but it does not require a prescription by do talk to your doctor before trying it.

Finding a sea sickness cure allows you to travel to places that otherwise is stopping you from enjoying activities together or making it miserable for one of you. Remember never take any thing unless you talk to your doctor first and make sure it is right and safe for you!
