A: We are not Dr.s! However, we have noticed that people who take Meclizine or use the Scop patch do not suffer from the effects of motion like those who do not. Meclizine is available by prescription or the over-the-counter version is Bonine. The Scop patch is available by prescription. IN EVERY SITUATION, WE ADVISE CONSULTING YOUR FAMILY PHYSICIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! A FEW EXTRA MOMENTS CAN SAVE YOUR TRIP OF A LIFETIME. We encourage our customers to get a good night sleep, eat early, and eat a little something in the morning, before going fishing. Starting your oral medication a couple of days ahead of time seems to work the best and again we recommend that you consult your family doctor before taking any medication.
