View Full Version : Seasick pills??

03-26-2005, 11:17 AM
Just wondering what people use for their children. Does the DCL give out something that is suitable for kids? Have a son 5 and daughter 4 and was not sure if we should give them something before hand or not. I don't really want them to get tired or dry mouth, but don't want them sick either. Hoping for some calm seas April 10th.

We used Bonine. Its chewable and cherry flavored...(small pill size too) Have them take it about an hour before. Did my daughter a whole world of good on our first trip. After first time, she never needed it again.

An antihistimine like benadryl works pretty well for children - or so I've heard.

Check with your pharmacist to see what they recommend for children.

DSs Pediatrician says it works great...

Children tend to be less susceptible to seasickness though...
