Do the sea sickness wrist bands work better than dramamine? I'm assuming the Mexican Riviera will be rockier than my past caribbean cruises.

We was on that cruise a few years back. We were on the Pride out of Long Beach in Oct 2003. The seas were calm. I know several people swear by the bands. My Aunt used one with great success. My wife always uses the patch.

I absolutely love the band, but make sure that you get a good one. I don't know how well the cheapies work. I use the Relief Band. Here is a link about the Relief Band: http://www.safehomeproducts.com/shp2/hh/reliefband.asp

Plus you have the added factor that it does not make you tired like dramamine
Hope this helps!

Don't worry about the Mexican Riviera; it's no more likely to be rough than the Caribbean.

Just looked at that link. I wonder how it works on someone like me. I have pinched nerves in the c-spine. Maybe that is why I do not get sea sick.

Wearing the patch and wrist band didnt work for me. I didnt get nauseated at all but the lightheaded feeling was terrible. Someone told me about the "shock watch" which I found at Walgreens.

There is another post on sea-sickness, draft, displacement, ships dampeners, size of ships and a whole lot of other ideas.

Sea-sickness is mostly in your head so it is all about what you believe will make you feel better.

For me, without question it is GINGER! Candied, capsules, raw and even gingerale. Most of the things you wear are gimmicks, with the exception of a prescribed patch. I wish I could point you to the thread that discusses this in depth. Sorry.
