Another seasick medicine

The admiral is prone to seasickness. As was noted, it generally wears itself out in about 72 hours. That first few days, however, are bad news. We tried the Dramamine, Bonine,... stuff, and then started looking at the labels. They were basically all the same. She tried Skop (the patches) and that made her more sick. Then a friend suggested Triptone. It contains Dimenhydrinate, an anti-emetic, is available over the counter, and seems to work the best of any we tried. If we hit rough weather, I will take one as a preventive. It does not make you drowsy, which is what I like about it.
