Seasickness remedies

Interestingly enough, on ''Mythbusters'' last night they were trying various seasickness remedies. If memory serves, they tried the Relief Band, the acupressure wristbands, ginger root pills, and some sort of tongue spray. They discovered that the ginger root pills were the most effective for the people doing the trial. I know someone who takes Bonine every time he sails; I''ve not tried this, and I don''t know what side effects, if any, there are. The interesting part of the whole thing was that they gave one of the testers a vitamin and told him it was an OTC seasickness remedy and he reported no feelings of nausea during the trial. I guess it''s all about what works for you.
