I take one in the morning just as a precaution. As with pain, if you wait till the condition is dire it will take the meds longer to work. The instructions say to take several hours before your flight or cruise.

I also give my Beverage Package quite a workout and the pill has no effects with that. It doesn't make me sleepy; I take the generic meclizine.

The people at Bonine say: Dosage should be taken one hour before travel starts. Adults and children 12 years of age and over: take 1 to 2 tablets once daily or as directed by a doctor. Among other cautions, they say not to combine it with Alcoholic beverages (Uh oh)

Exactly. I start 24hours before my cruise, and take one chewable tablet morning and night for the duration of the cruise.

I use ginger "chewable" candies as needed.
