Different things work for different people. Stugeron & crystallised ginger work for me. I don't use it these days as I'm ok if the boat is moving & im helming.

Does anyone notice?

I've used Stugeron to good effect. The key is to start taking it early enough and not after you start feeling ill.

Chewing them decreases the time until effective.

I will give Stugeron a try and see how we get on, i like the idea of those wrist bands mentioned but a bit pricey.

Actually, a couple of people DID notice and I don't take them now. I'm sure they take different people different ways. They don't agree with Missus willk to well either mind you.
