Question about non-drowsy forms of motion sickness OTC meds
My son just invited me to go to see the IMAX Alice in Wonderland movie next weekend ura

The only thing is, in the past, when I've gone on attractions or rides at places like Disneyland that are 3D or the likes of IMAX I become ill...like (literally) green in the face can't stand up ill...wanting to just expire ill. Oh, it's soooo bad...yak

Since I know a regular motion sickness pill will knock me out cold, I'm wondering if anyone has taken the non-drowsy formulas of motion sickness pills, and they actually worked...and in particular in the instance of an IMAX movie.

I don't want to take a chance of wasting his money on a ticket if I'm just going to have to leave the theater after 10 mins. and I really don't want to get sick like that ever again. I also really don't have the money to waste on an OTC med that's not going to work. If it's going to work I'm okay with buying some.

Anybody experienced with taking these for the same reason I'm considering? Or anyone have some sure-fire, no fail alternative advice on how to make it so I won't get sick?


I will be so verysad if I can't go.

Ginger pills are good against seasickness/motion sickness.

Thanks! I'll google ginger and check it out. It's gotta be a sure-fire thing though. Just even thinking of getting sick like that again is anxiety producing.

The funny thing is that I don't get car sick, nor seasick, or sick when I fly. I can zoom-zoom around the astral and beyond without even an urp-one.

It's only in these 3D kinds of venues...well, then and when ELF waves are flying. I react the same way to both.

hmm This has definitely made me to wonder what the correlation is more than once.

Yes, I have read that studies of ginger say it's even more effective than dramamine.

You could take capsules of the powdered herb, you could make tea from the root, you could even eat candied ginger - that's what I do.

Re: Question about non-drowsy forms of motion sickness OTC meds
Another fast way to get ginger in your system is a visit to your local Oriental grocery. They sell a tea that's just ginger and honey, in little crystals that dissolve instantly in water. They come in boxes of foil single-cup packets; brand names will vary. Find them in the tea section. They're hard to take (for me) because they're so strong and gingery but they definitely work. They'll also knock out a cold overnight.

Okay, I went a googlin' and after reading some studies and whatnot ginger appears to be a definitive alternative. There's both a Chinese market and herbal store right up the street so I'll check them out.

Heck! Sucking on some candied ginger sounds like a great alternative to Milk Duds...but I think I'll take some caps before, too, just to be safe.

I'd get some of the ginger/honey crystals just to have around in the case of a cold.

I googled these, too. A little pricey for me for a one time gig, but thank you for the suggestion. Your advice doesn't go without merit though because my body worker is an accupressurist as well as a masseuse and chakra aligner, so I'll give him a call and ask him what pressure points to depress just in case all else fails.

It also occurred to me that smoking a little grass before the show might help. I rarely smoke anymore, but I do know that it calms nausea, and it doesn't make me sleepy.

chuckle I know my son would be happy to share a toke or two with me before the show. He's 30 years old, btw, so I won't be doing something like contributing to his delinquency. Lol, that ship sailed long ago.

I'm so glad I posted this! Thanks youse guys!

Meclazine is the ingredient in Dramamine LIGHT and Bonine. Can also get it cheaper from the pharmacist if you call ahead...works wonders and doesn't make you sleepy.
