    Though specified as a sea sickness remedy, it works for other nausea as well. It's in the drug class of antihistamines so can cause some sleepiness until you get use to it, and a little dry mouth, but it doesn't have the 'downer' effect of most antihistamines. It's actually a mild mood elevator so if you have the flu, it actually makes you feel better.
    I wish there was an 8 or 12 hour version, but 6 hours is pretty good. The chewable one doesn't taste very good and the regular pill is small and easy to take, so I use that one.
    During allergy season, I take it daily for sneezing, etc. and it works as well as any allergy medication. Otherwise, I use it for nausea or for back pain. It does have some muscle relaxing qualities.

    I get extremely carsick (though never get sick on boats, planes, etc) so I tried this...once. The instructions said to take 1-2 tablets, and since I was still carsick from the previous day and had a loooong car ride ahead of me, I took 2. Again, that's the proper dosage. Within 40 minutes I got extremely droswy, and I mean this was the most tired I have ever been. I was so tired that it hurt. And I was slurring my words, I wasn't at all coherant and I kept falling over. I had blurry vision and the worst dry mouth. When I got home an hour later, I ended up losing consciousness a few times. I had to drink a lot of caffeine just to feel human and once it wore off 5 hours later, I was still loopy and out of it. I've taken sleeping pills and prescription pain meds and things for various things (I get severe migraines) and none of them affected me this way. It felt like I had overdosed on something very very strong. Keep in mind, while I'm not a huge girl, I'm not small either. I'm 5'10'' 150lbs. Taking the recommended dosage shouldn't have affected me so strongly. Plus, they don't put anything on the bottle about drowsiness at all. And they don't tell you that you shouldn't drive after taking it, and trust me, you shouldn't. For someone like me who had never taken it, how was I to know that it would make me any bit drowsy, let alone knock me off my feet like this? It's very irresponsible of them not to have any such warnings on the packaging. It does cure the motion sickness, but it ends up making you feel so much worse. Some people have said that they take it everyday, and I cannot imagine that. Mine is going in the trash. I'd rather feel carsick than lose consciousness and be incoherant for an entire day.

    Comments about Dramamine Motion Sickness Relief, Original Formula, Tablets, 12 ea:

    I prefer the original formula to the "non-drowsy" one, since as far as I could tell, the non-drowsy formula has the same effects as the original formula, save for that it goes on for about 24 hours for one dosage. At least with the original formula, I know that I will begin to feel less stunned after four hours. I never get on an aircraft without taking at least one tablet, and have always felt fine, even on the bounciest flights.

      Comments about Dramamine Motion Sickness Relief, Original Formula, Tablets, 12 ea:

      No one wants to be the person that pukes on the flight (Ive done it once, no bueno). I get motion sickness while flying. I take one pill about 30 minutes before boarding and then another 30 minutes after. Prevents all the hot flashes and nausea that comes with motion sickness. Also makes me drowzy, which is a plus for sleeping on the plane.

      Comments about Dramamine Motion Sickness Relief, Original Formula, Tablets, 12 ea:

      I have found that Dramamine is the only motion sickness formula that works for me. It is very easy to take and always works. There are some side effects such as dry mouth, fairly extreme drowsiness however I think the fact that it works out weighs the side effects. I would never drive a car having taken it and would only use it if you are able to sleep once you have taken it. There are warnings on the pack that it can cause marked drowsiness, and other side effects. I think it is an excellent product if you want relief from motion sickness.

        Comments about Dramamine Motion Sickness Relief, Original Formula, Tablets, 12 ea:

        I take this whenever I know I'll be treating patients in the ambulance. Windy country roads cause a lot of swaying motion in the back of the ambulance and I often feel car sick. Our transport time is usually in excess of 1 hr. Dramamine works well - I only take one tablet and would not recommend taking the 2 tablets as directed.

              I'm not a great flyer, so I use Dramamine to help me sleep through a flight. I take two about a half hour before a flight and by the time I buckle my seatbelt, I'm just about nodding off. Next thing I know, I hear the announcement that we're preparing to land! I also get airsick, so it prevents any upset stomach with a rocky flight (and since I'm usually asleep, I don't know about that either!). But, it does make me drowsy for a while after landing, so I usually don't drive a car right away.

                  I take this with my breakfast or any other meal the morning after drinking, and it takes the hang over feeling away. It cures the upset stomach and the headaches. I also love it for car rides and amusment park rides! I just wanted to let you know there are so many other uses for this drug other than just for a car ride. DO NOT TAKE BEFORE OR DURING DRINKING ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES!!!

                      I take 1/2 tablet 30-60 minutes before getting into a car. That prevents motion sickness but doesn't really make me drowsy. It has been a life-saver, too, for my granddaughter who is now 6 years old. Wish I had known about it when her mother was young.
