This is a common thread - try a search with "Sea Sickness" in the message title. This appeared last year - it may answer your question, alternatively there are plenty of other "remedies" on the earlier threads :P

 

********

I don't know right off hand who makes them as I don't tend to have the problem and the last time I dispensed the things was in the late 70s and they were gotten thru a government contract so I never noticed the brand.

 

With the names, you can probably get a pharmacist (chemist?) to locate them for you.

 

Two I found with a web search were

 

Transderm Patch Analgesics

 

Fentanyl/ Duragesic 25-50-75-100 mcg/hour transderm patch for 72 hours

Lidoderm/ Lidocaine 5% patch for postherpetic neuralgia for 12 hours/day

 

or

Novartis Consumer Health's scopolamine patch (Transderm Sc p)

You can get more info and some possible sources from

Hope something works for you, boat fishing is THE BEST

mick h - the patches are wonderful for those prone to motion sickness. One patch if the water is not too rough and two patches if it is.

 

Unfortunately, unless there has been a change in the past year or so, they are not approved for sale in the UK.

 

Seems hard to believe since I was dispensing them when I was stationed on a US Coast Guard vessel in around 1980 (so they are not new) and I haven't seen any reports of long-term problems showing up.
