As far as drugs, have you tried dramamine?
Yes, keep it on me.

I also agree with the ginger. I used to race keelboats, and we hit some big swells. Never bothered me, but the helmsman swore by it and and drank ginger ale like a trooper (well, it had dark rum in it too, but I digress ) so yeah! Dark and stormies work great, there's a reason they're named that!

Re: Something for motion sickness anybody

I had motion sickness bad when I was a kiddy, but every time my grosvater Klaus took us out on his boat he would make me drink some Jagermeister when I was feeling ill. It worked like a charm. I researched it and found out that Jager was originally folk medicine used to treat many different things. I have no idea if Jager treats motion sickness, but my grandpappy definitely thought so. Then again, he followed much of the old German ways so it could easily be the placebo effect of me thinking it works xD

Ginger didn't work for me. I don't feel it too bad, but it can get me on a boat or working on my back like under a sink, and I feel it for a up to a week afterwards. This last time, regular dramimine worked for me to keep the swirly feeling at bay.

GF gets it pretty bad and swears by dramimine, perfect for a plane trip where she can sleep anyways.

There are many different pathways a drug can work to help motion sickness. Check out this list: Antiemetic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Interesting that ginger would be the only non-prescription method to use the 5-HT3 receptor antagonist pathway, most of the OTC drugs are antihistamines.

Also didn't realize that dramimine is just benadryl with a stimulant added to it to make it a little less drowsy.
