  • Eeek that sucks!! Hmmm. I don't know much about dramamine, can you take a half pill instead? I just looked it up and it's an antihistamine. You can also take phenegran, which is cheap, but that will probably also knock you out. Honestly I would just try less dramamine, to see if it reduces your nausea but enables you to stay awake! have you seen an ear/nose/throat doctor about it?

  • Well, avoiding motion would be one.
    Dramamine (sp?) works very well, actually.

  • Anything from video games to movies (mostly home videos, where the camera shakes) gives me severe motion sickness. Dramamine knocks me out unfortunately. Scopalomine patches work, but they are too expensive.

  • Here is some info I found.  Looks like you can also take Benadryl.
