I've suffered with terrible seasickness over the years & experienced the landsicknes that Nos refers to, especially after a long day, or weeks liveaboard. I find that seasickness manifests itself in 3 distinct phases:-
1st, you think you're going to die
2nd, you wish you could die
3rd, you think you have died
Alan is on to something with the jam donuts, I had jam sandwiches recommended to me. They don't stop the vomiting, but make it taste better when you do throw up.

No, but I do feel slightly 'out of sync' if I take it when I'm on land.
Oddly the dizzyness doesn't feel like dizzyness (if that makes sense), and when it's at its worst is times I can't see the horizon.

Bovril works well like that too- it doesn't taste awful coming back up, but you don't get lumps in your sinuses

I find a bottle of water and a couple of bananas sorts me out when that "feeling" comes on. I've seen me get it when back on shore if its been quite rough, I can walk it off after a while, sitting down and just roughing it out doesnt seem to work.

I get motion sickness bad, even being a passenger in the back seat of a car does it for me.

We do a bit of work laying out fence lines and deer counting with a chopper, that's the worst for me, if its bouncy at all I'm on my knees when I get out.

Try a different brand of tablets as they are slightly different.

Worth a try. I received a Personal Message from a RIBnetter suggesting I try a prescription only version...

So there's a thought. As there's plenty on here using a pill to keep it up, why not one to keep it down?

I too get the motion of the ocean on dry land after a long period of time on the water. Nothing as the OP described where I am almost falling over though. I do get to where I can't stand straight up unassisted without rocking around a little bit. Never considered my amount a problem.

As JKY suggested I would try switching meds, and even seeing if you can't get completely off them. Ginger, bananas, etc are natural meds to quell sea sickness. Well so is marijuana.

(I have been sea sick on a boat, but so far have never puked. Grew up sailing and we often were on the boat for long stints. My day will come though.)

I have been lucky enough not to have ever experienced seasickness but I do experience a rocking sensation like what others have described on here when back on dry land, but after a few scoops all seems to be normal
