When I found a great deal on a cruise three years ago, I didn’t hesitate to book it. The thought never entered my mind that perhaps the rate was too good to be true. It wasn’t until I was on the cruise that I found out we would be sailing through the Caribbean in the middle of hurricane season. While I had imagined smooth sailing, that first cruise was the opposite. Our ship rocked and rolled and I often wondered how people could stand upright. By the time we departed from the boat, I was convinced I would never sail again.
My husband would love to book another cruise, but I’ve been hesitant because I felt so sick on the first one we took. I also got sick on the second one we took. I’m not sure I can handle a third. I guess I’m not a fan of the cruise experience. Sure some of it is great- the relaxation and excursions can hardly be beat. It’s just the rocky water that gets me. A headache and queasy stomach from motion sickness certainly places a damper on a fun day out with the family.
While I’m content to stay on dry land, I’m not one to miss out on fun experiences. So, I took the Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals No More Missed Moments Challenge and booked a getaway for my daughter and I via ferry boat across Lake Erie. I know from experience the ride can be a bit bumpy, so I keep Dramamine on hand. I admit that I don’t often take it because I don’t really like the way it makes me feel- tired. Who wants to be sleepy when you’re trying to have fun with your family?
Enter the NEW Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals product allowed me to enjoy the day crossing the ferry to South Bass Island with my daughter. No more nausea, queasiness, or dizziness for me and I stepped off the boat not at all tired. I wasn’t even tired when I took the New non-drowsy Dramamine later that night to cross back to the mainland. The NEW Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals formula delivered what it promised and I was able to experience a wonderful day with my daughter minus the side-effects that I could have had with the old formula. Plus- I’m a fan of natural products and use them when ever possible.
Do you know millions of people suffer from motion sickness? Motion sickness can occur when traveling in a car, boat, train, plane, or just about any mode of transportation. Have you ever felt queasy watching an IMAX movie? Ummm…yeah…that’s motion sickness. It seems to be more common for women, children around the age of 12, pregnant women and those diagnosed with inner ear illnesses.
Prevention is key when it comes to treating motion sickness. About 30 minutes before heading out on my adventure with my daughter, I took the New Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals. I was thrilled not to experience any symptoms of motion sickness even though the lake was a little bit choppy on the day we crossed.
Don’t avoid those activities that you love but make you sick. Made with natural ginger, the new Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals is safe to use every day.
