What is the best medicine you guys have found for motion sickness? Going on a 2-3 day 2-3 park tour, but my last theme park visit had me spewing green slush. What should I take to keep myself from getting too sick? Note I'll probably not be eating much of anything during the day.
Not eating may be a bad idea, but you want ot avoid the greasy lead-balloon stuff. Also, dehydration can contribute to this sort of thing, so drink lots and lots of water and avoid the soda/pop/beer/coffee/etc.
I went through a phase when I'd have trouble on planes during turbulence, and dramamine worked fine for that. Thankfully, I seem to have put that behind me. The medical college of Wisconsin suggests that ginger root could help too.
Actually, I guess I should ask what to eat, instead of not eating anything. I figure on the greasy stuff. Would bread be a problem? Ginger root I'll have to try, and as for water, I keep it with me(usually the only thing I do drink @ a park, with the occasional green slushy...)
I don't know, the ginger root tastes really nasty and actually caused my middle aged cousin to puke after she ate it. For everyone I know that has motion sickness, one dramamine usually works, however it will really slow you down and make you tired. If you're going on a multiple day tour, I don't know if you'd want to make that trade off with being tired.
Eat Subway or something light with no grease in it, but vinegar (red Wine vinegar) is fine. You can also dilute and drink a small glass of vinegar (redwine vinegar is the best) with water before leaving for the park. If you eat something like fried chicken at the park, add lots of malt vineger to it to kill the grease effects. Also, drink only water, lemonade or iced tea (flavored or not), and NO Cola's except for something like 7up/Sprite/Slice.
Not. Gonna. Happen. I will be riding all the kiddie rides/coasters I can, but I'm really going to finally ride Beast and Sonny(don't want to hear anything from anybody. I liked Hurricane @ MB and I hear its rougher than SOB).
One of the nurses I work with says there is something only a doctor can prescribe. I believe it is something like a cream that you put a dab behind your ears, it is suppossed to work wonders. When I get into work on Monday, I will see if I can find the name of it.
Well, actually, it didn't "become" green slush, so to speak. It was alreay green slush when it went down. Whats bad was that Andy made the comment(after I was talking about how good it was) that he hoped it tasted as good when I re-tasted it. But its okay, I spewed just enough on him to get him back for that comment...
Odd, that thread did not come up when I did a search, and it was fairly recently. I knew I had seen somewhere something about motion sickness, but someone on URC had also given me a suggestion, so I figured it was there.
