heather_b Posted March 10, 2009 #26 Share Posted March 10, 2009 We just got back from our very first cruise. I was really concerned about motion sickness and had all the stuff suggested on these boards with me - didn't have to use a one! I took the chance and was very glad I did, be sure you have a problem before taking the meds, just might be OK. The problem with 'waiting to see if you have a problem' is that (for me anyway) once you start feeling sick you don't feel better until you are on LAND. I tried this before and kept bringing up everything I took :eek:. Trust me EVERYONE on the airplane knew who I was :o Although this will be my first cruise; I wore the patch while in disney to go on a few rides - and it worked for me. The worst I got was a headache after spinning on the tea cups -- trust me that is a BIG deal for me only a headache and not tossing my cookies!! The only problem I had with the patch was my eyes had trouble focusing when I was trying to read the park map - but if I closed one eye (yeh like popeye) I was fine. I didn't feel dizzy; I just could focus my eyes to read the map; hopefully I can deal with it and will be able to read some on the ship. Good luck and Dramamine does have a non drowsy formula.
