Default Sea Sick meds and Drowsiness


Does anyone know if the "patch" makes you sleepy. Also, do you have to avoid alcohol?

Thanks for your replies.

I'm not sure if it makes you drowsy but I do know that you're supposed to avoid alcohol. I used Bonine. Only ended up needing two pills for a 7 day cruise as we had smooth seas. Didn't get drowsy and had a few drinks with no side effects. Hope this helps.

Hi - the patch didn't make me sleepy but definately avoid alcohol. I tested it out at home with a glass of wine and I was blotto after a few sips lol - cheap drunk lol. The patch does make your eyes a little red but I had no vision problems otherwise. It was great not to have to worry and I really have a problem with motion sickness otherwise. I tried the less-drowsy Bonine recently on boat trip and was really sleepy the whole day -so I guess it just depends on your metabolism or something. I wore the patch (changing it every third day) for the seven day cruise as well as five days after in Orlando so I could do the rides at Universal, The only trouble was I was dizzy for a couple of days after I got home and stopped usuing it. I will definately use it for the next cruise as well. Hope this helps. You can e-mail me if you need more info. TTFN Jennifer
