Unhappy Sea Bands, Do they work?

Never been air sick or sea sick before but on my last cruise I got really ill. I still believe it was something I ate but just to make sure this time, do Sea Bands really work and if so should you use on one or each wrist?
Thanks

My partner suffers at least once on every cruise from being sea sick. Sometimes badly..other times just a bit of an upset tummy. I never get sea sick.. We have not used the band, however we are getting one for our next cruise as we know the sea on that cruise will probably be the roughest we have been though.

On the very first cruise I was on, there were a group of about 300 coworkers on the cruise. Well..150 coworkers and their guests. One of my friends boyfriends had been sea sick since he stepped on the ship. After three or four days of it not going away for him, someone over heard my friend talking about her bf being sick and the person who over heard her went to their stateroom and got a sea sick band they had brought for themselves. Since they had not yet had a need to use it, they told my friend her bf could. He put it on and within 10 minutes felt no sea sickness at all.

I personally think they are worth a try since if they do work, it would mean not taking meds. Different remedies seem to work for different people. My partner has found the non-drowsey meds do nothing to help him. Our last cruise what he did was took a half of a dose of the drowsey kind in the morning and another half in the afternoon and that worked great for him and did not make him very sleepy. The first day he took some on that cruise he took two.. and within 20 minutes fell into a deep sleep. I got tired, after two hours, of just sitting around the room so I tried to wake him to tell him I was going to go to the casino for a while. Doug is a very light sleeper.. but I literally had to shake him for like 20 seconds before he woke up. It actually scared me that he was sleeping that deeply.

Thanks Terry.
I've got some of the chewable Bonine but I figured if the bands work then it would probably be worth the costs. Appreicate the input.

I have problems with vertigo. I always wear the sea bands when we fly. Last year when we were cruising to Alaska & the ship was rocking horribly, but because I wore my sea bands, I didn't get sick. I do get motion sickness quite easily, so they do work! You do have to wear one on each wrist.

Bought one of these but haven't tried it yet.

ReliefBand Explorer - Motion Sickness Protection
- 46 customer reviews.

The ReliefBand(R) Explorer device is a watch-like device worn on the ventral side of the wrist for use in the treatment of nausea and vomiting due to pregnancy, postoperative nausea, chemotherapy, and motion sickness. When activated, the device emits a low-level electrical current across two small electrodes on its underside. The ReliefBand(R) device is the first patented, commercially available Nausea-Vomiting device to reach the clinical marketplace.
Now with the ReliefBand(R) device, you have more opportunity to enjoy flying, boating, amusement park rides and other types of travel and entertainment without having motion sickness spoil your good time.
The non-prescription ReliefBand(R) device is unlike anything else sold for motion sickness. It offers numerous advantages. First, it is Drug Free. Because it is not a drug, you won't have the headache, drowsiness, dizziness or other side effects typical of most medicinal remedies on the market. Also, instead of having to take something several hours ahead of time, the ReliefBand can be used any time, even after nausea symptoms start. Second, there are no restrictions on consumption of food, beverages or medications with the use of ReliefBand. And finally, unlike medicines, pressure bands, and other passive remedies, with the ReliefBand device you control the level and duration of relief. You can actually feel it helping to control your motion sickness.
Worn like a bracelet or a watch, the ReliefBand device uses gentle electrical signals to stimulate a specific nerve in the underside of the wrist. There are five levels of stimulation; adjust the dial to the highest level that feels comfortable. By stimulating the body's nervous system in this fashion, the ReliefBand can be used to relieve the nausea and vomiting symptoms associated with motion sickness.
Features:
  • Rotary dial adjusts output to one of five power settings.
  • Light indicates operation and low battery condition.
Do not use if wearing cardiac pacemaker.
The unlimited use Reusable ReliefBand operates for approximately 140 hours at power level 2 before you need to change the batteries. Then it's just a matter of picking up two 3V lithium batteries (CR2025) at your local drug store or where camera batteries are sold. The Reusable unit ensures that protection from motion sickness is always as close as your flight bag.
Batteries and conductivity gel included.

On our cruise last year I gotta a little sea sick. Don't want to do that again. And I have heard since we are sailing out of Seattle there is a slight change we could have some rough waters so I don't want to take the chance again and be sick on our awesome Alaskan cruise. So if anyone could please tell me where can we buy the Sea Bands. Thank you very much.

On my next cruise I am going to bring my clone. I will wear a sea band and my clone won't.
I report our findings when I return

Can a clone get a passport?

Try the ginger root. They sell capsules at the local supermarket (100 for about $5). Work better than Dremamine or Bonine. Be sure to take them with food or it may result in serious heartburn. My wife took these on the last cruise and takes them every time we get in the car. They work like a charm.

These are what I use all the time, husband as well. You need to get used to them and follow directions, but they work fantastically well. They also work for stomach flu bugs, drugs that make you feel sick, and morning sickness.
I would never travel without them.
I tried the elastic type and they were very painful because of tightness.

Default Sea Bands worked for us

My husband and I used them on our first cruise to Bermuda last October. They worked great! We had a day of really rough seas and we were fine. I get motion sick very easily. I would definitely recommend them. You wear one on each wrist.

Years ago when my DH learned to scuba, the dive shop recommended TripTone. It's totallly non-drowsy and works like a charm. Your local dive shop should have it or you can order it online.

The sea bands work for me but you need to keep them on and they work the best on the roughest seas. I never got sick and i take them with me all the time. I'm finding the more i sail, The less i need them. Drink ginger ale, that works too.

You can buy the Relief Band online, I think we got ours at Magellan. The Pilot Store carries them too. Just google relief band. I'm thinking it was about $130.

Got my Relief Bands off of Ebay, usually around 90 dollars. This time of year marinas, and sporting goods stores in the frigid parts of the country, have on line sales to keep income up. I use them on my sailboat. They are FDA approved and were invented for chemo patients who battle nausea. When you turn it on...the results are immediate. Keep spare batteries though as the results are just as quick if the battery goes dead.

If you turn it up to level 6, your hand may open and close rhythmically.....cool!
