Paragon Sailing and preventing Seasickness

I am looking at taking my wife on a sunset cruise through Paragon Sailing. Not sure if we will get seasick or not. We haven't been on the ocean before, just inland lakes. Is there anything you take (dramamine, etc.) prior to a cruise to minimize seasickness?? Just looking to be preventative rather than reactionary. Thanks for any feedback you might have...

I use dramamine. Try it before you leave for vacation to make sure it won't make you sleepy.

My sister-in-law had great success with bonine...just be sure to take one pill the night before and one an hour or so before you sail. No drowsy!

There are wrist bands that you can try as well, if you want to avoid the drugs.

Hope you can find something that works. It will be a wonderful evening, if you aren't sea sick!

Bonine contains the same meds as Dramamine II the non drowsy formula .

The generic name of the drug is Meclazine and you can buy it from most pharmacies here in the USA as a generic product. We always take it to prevent seasickness because we know we are susceptible to it!
