Hello all...for the first time in years & years, I'm just about well enough to take a proper holiday. We've decided to celebrate our 60ths with a sort of little cruise in a smallish boat going up the coast of Norway. They warn passengers to bring seasickness meds.
So, I got those special bracelets from boots for us both. And I've heard the usual advice re stay on deck & look at something on the shoreline etc etc.
Also, I told the pharmacist what daily oral meds we're on (me: hydroxy+myco+amitriptyline, and my husband has crohns in remission and takes daily loperamide). He studied his prescription reference book re contraindications, and said amitriptyline was the prob, as combined with most travel pills will make you v sleepy. So he advised trying 1/2 tablets with caution. He sold me stugeron (cinnarizine 15mg per tab) for us both to try, and also kwells (hyoscine hydrobromide 300microgrammes per tab), which he said my husband shouldn't take, and I should only take with caution
Has anyone here got any experience of these OTC travel sickness meds etc etc?
I'd v much welcome advice re combining OTC travel sickness prevention with our meds etc etc!
