I believe that would be Sturgeron, and it is not available in the US.

Word is that it is very effective.

and I''ve used it and it has drowsiness side effects, would be glad to hear if anyone knows of a good medication that doesn''t give drowsiness, it''s not too useful when you are working night watch

try ginger snaps. ginger is a natural remidy for nausea and has only one side effect. you can get fat eating too many.

SEA SICK MEDICATIONS

I have used Dramamine and Bonine and both make me sleepy and bother my stomach. Last fall I used the Scopolamine patch with very good results. No drowsiness but a little bit of dry-mouth. Hard to keep on if you''re wearing F/W gear so I covered it with a band-aid. I''ve never actually been seasick but I take the stuff on ocean trips just in case.

Denr is an unknown quantity at this point
SEA SICK MEDICATIONS

Although I don''t suffer from seasickness, I have used, with a lot of success; a new product called Motion Ease on some of my not-so-hearty guests. Motion Ease is a liquid concoction of 6 or 7 herbs. The liquid is applied behind your ears (a little dab will do ya), it can be used even after the symptoms have began and reapplied as often as necessary. Since it is not taken orally absolutely no side effects are experienced. It''s a bit expensive, approximately $20 for an ounce. I no longer have the pleasure of uttering the words "we ain''t leavin til we''re heavin" on my boat!

Has anyone tried that electronic wrist band-Releif Band (Adventurer). Myself I have yet to get sick but I am curious for the sake of others that come aboard.

I bought one of those relief band devices for my fiance. They do work but given her small wrist I was difficult to keep the electrode in contact with the correct point on the wrist.

SEA SICK MEDICATIONS

This will sound a little extreme but what eventually worked for me was carpel tunnel surgery on my wrists !! well, i didn''t have it done as a cure for my sea/motion sickness problem but it did eliminate them. I used to get seasick just snorkeling - and i mean i was providing some good fish chum when i snorkeled. Had my surgery - both wrists at once - in the spring of 1995 and haven''t had seasickness yet. It kind of makes sense when you think about those special wrist bands that promise relief. Has anyone else out there had a similar experience?
