Lisa makes a very important point about consulting your doctor before taking OTC meds for motion sickness. Many of them are antihistamines, and can have bad side effects. For example, I take meds for high blood pressure and cannot have antihistamines because they can cause a dangerous rise in my BP.

Another thing about being sea sick - laying down can actually make it worse. It is best to stand up, or at least sit up and keep moving.
