I was just curious because I called last time on the last night of my cruise as I was very sick. Turned out it wasnt motion sickness, and more of something like the flu. Front desk was going to call the RN, but i didn't wanna cause a stir.. anyhow, i was eating up dramamine that night and called to ask about the shot as i could not stop upchucking, lol. i have never had any type of motion sickness before..ever, ever, ever
anywhoo, i was just asking for curiositys sake. just wondering for future reference...if one gets sick enough to visit the doc, what is the charge? the only reason i have even heard there was a mystery "shot" was because I read about it on CC..
A shot for motion sickness??? You'd be better off taking something orally (Bonine, Dramamine) that would prevent motion sickness, unless you are so nauseated that nothing will stay down. . A shot would be an anti emtetic such as Zofran, Reglan, Decadron, Anzemet or Phenergen. It helps prevent nausea but not long term.
You would have to go to the infirmary to get the shot. You surely don't want to be getting a bunch of shots. Take Bonine, 25 mg each night and you should be good to go.
