Need for motion sickness meds??

My friend and I will be on the AC next week and are taking an 8 hour boat tour from Praiano to Capri. I don't normally get sick on boats (if my memory serves me right), but I know smaller boats can sometimes have more of a "choppy" ride than larger ones. Our boar is to hold 10-12 people, plus the captain. Do you think it is a good idea to take some motion sickness meds before departure? I figured if I DID get motion sickness, it would ruin the entire day trip.

I welcome your thoughts. Thank you!

Christine

I'd err on the side of caution, you might not enjoy yourself so much if you were worrying all the time about feeling ill.

The Mediterranean isn't always like a mill pond even in summer.

these sea bands work great for my sons and me. We suffer terribly from motion sickness and Dramamine makes us sleepy.

Often if the waters are too choppy the boats won't head out. We've had that happen a few times. But I would def bring something - that is a long day not to feel well.

I would definitely take something. I use Scopalamine patches (get a prescription from my doc) and it works like a charm - also lasts for 3 days so I don't have to worry about when to take it.

Such great advice!!! Thank you to everyone!! Much better than taking the medication that could cause drowsiness.
