If you've never had it..can you still get it.?

Im talking about motion sickness or altitude sickness. If you've never gotten it in your whole life, are you still prone to getting it at any point in your life? Also does Bonine or Dramamine really work..? TIA!!

  • Well, those that suffer from it had to have a first time for it.

  • yep. anyone can get motion sickness. bonine and dramamine do work, but the reason they work is because they put you to sleep so you're not awake to get sick...try the ear patch for motion sickness

  • Don't bother with dramamine, bonine works so much better!

  • i just know that i get awful motion sickness in the back seat of cars, no matter how short the trip is, bonine makes me just as sleepy as dramamine...the patch worked for me, no drowsiness, just made my throat a little dry but gum took care of that

  • here's another thing, the mind is very powerful so if you worry about getting motion sickness, you will get motion sickness. if you convince yourself that you won't get it, that can work if you've never had it, motion sickness can be treated psychologically
