Default Motion sickness?

I was just wondering if anyone else suffers from motion sickness yet continues to go on float plane trips and such. I aquired a new illness last year with my inner ear that makes me very prone to motion sickness yet I plan on going on the Sourdough boat off of Kodiak next year. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Clint

My dad used to work on the oar ships on Lake Superior and he swears that you need to have a full stomach to fight off motion sickness. When the storms would come up they would all batten down the hatches and head to the galley and eat eat eat until the lake calmed down. Drammamine pills work for me.

when i was in the Marine Corps and on ship the doc would give the sea sick a patch of some sort and if i rember right they put it on there temple. you might ask your doc. about it. drammamine will probably make you sleepy. but they might have daytime dose.

I used the "less drowsey" version of drammamine on a float plane for caribou, it didnt work for me nearly as well as the regular. For my money, I'll take the the sleepy side effects of the regular over that "green feeling" any day. Everbody's different though, maybe you can experiment prior to a big trip. Good luck!

deerslayer,

It may be true, but I wonder a bit about the eating thing. I once went on a whale watch trip off the coast of maine in a 40 mph gail. The seas were very high and 98% of the passengers got sick. I clearly remember watching most of them in the galley eating like pigs at the beginning (drinking too). Well, there was more clam chowder and donuts up-chucked along that deck than anyone would ever care to see. By the time we got to the whales, there was me, the captain and another guy having a good time taking pictures. The other 100 passengers were laying down everywhere moaning and groaning. I don't know if the food hurt, but it sure didn't help on that trip. <img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hmmmmmm....Motion sickness....I think you either have it or you don't. As a &quot;just in case&quot; I always take some Dramamine when I go out on big waters....otherwise, I usually don't get it. Anyway, a friend of mine swears by those pressure point bands that you can purchase for under $5....they look like an elastic wrist band...I think its all in your head, but thats just my opinion.
