Sea Sick Bracelets

Has anyone used the wrist bands for sea sickness? I feel bad for my husband because every year he wants to take one of the Booze Criuises but I am afraid to. I get sick when we go in the bay, but not when we are on the river, so I've been afraid to take a chance. I do okay with Dramamean but it makes me sleepy.

Would love feedback and/or suggestions.

I've never tried the wrist bands. I rely on the patch that is put behind ear. I call the doctor for prescription before any trip that we may be on the water.

I tried the wrist bands and they didn't work for me, I use Bonine, it doesn't make me sleepy and it doesn't give me trouble if I have a drink. Dramamine always made me tired and I could never have a drink on it or I got super loopy. Eveyone is different though, the only thing my son can take is Dramamine.

Try ginger cookies (Nabisco) with real ginger of course or defizzed ginger ale, I think Canada Dry has ginger.

Bonine worked for me. Never tried the patch, but people like them.

The bands you find at CVS etc don't work for me for sea or air. However, Relief Band has worked wonders! It takes a little bit to get used to but I swear by it. I still can get a little queasy but not normally the full blown.

My little granddaughter gets car sick and they use the wrist bands for her and they seem to work great. My daughter-in-law has used the patch behind the ear for herself and they work for her.

We have a boat & keep the wrist bands on board. I have never used them personally, but they seem to work for those that did use them.

Get a set of old costume earings that clamp on your earlobe and wind one of them (only one) down so tight it borders on discomfort/pain.
