This is really a silly question but do you say it "Bonine" ( long i like the number 9) or "Bonine(like neen)?? I know its stupid but I have heard it both ways?

Thanks!

I'm personally a "bah-neen" person, but I've heard it both ways as well. They'll know what you're asking for.

I don't think it's a stupid question, because I've always wanted to know too! I always say "bo nine".

I say ba - neen. I figure it is because my sisters name is Janine, and we don't say Ja - nine(9), we say Ja - neen. But, that is just my logic! :teeth:

We say Bo - neen.

the other way sounds too much like a tumor to us.

I always say "bo-neen" but only because Dramamine is pronounced "drama-meen" so I figure that's the right way

Gosh, I never even thought of it...We say bo-nine(9), and I never really even considered there being another way to say it! LOL
Come to think of it, though, I've never actually heard anyone else say it. I've only seen it on the boards...
Hmmmmm....

"bo 9" sounded too close to "bovine" to me, and because I didn't want to get a drug for cows by mistake, I said "bo-neen". ;)

You guys are too funny! :rotfl: Thanks for my laugh of the day. I never know how to pronounce it either, so I just spell it for everyone. Actually I want to get "bonnie"n out of it myself. I have no idea why. :confused3 Whatever we call it, I know it works, and that's really what matters. :boat: pirate:

Having been on Meclizine for another problem...I've always pronounced it /neen/ I guess that's the way it is? Tomato/Tomado :teeth:

Nah, you pronounce it that way because you're from Cleveland! (It is the right way to say it, after all!!! :teeth: ) I was born and raised in Lakewood, then I moved out to Bronco country...still love the Browns and still hate the Broncos!!!!

Neen it is.

Too close to call.....but I think so far the "neen" 's are ahead.......I think I like saying it with a low southern drawl....bo- (9) This has been fun to read!! :rotfl:

Oh my gosh, this thread is hilarious. At our house it's bo-neen.

Well, I guess I have always thought of it as bo(9), but after reading all the arguments I have been swayed to the "neen" side. Maybe we should post a poll....

I'm a pharmacy school dropout, but I do remember one piece of info, and that is if the chemical ends in "ine", it's pronounced "een". But what about iodine and urine?, I asked my prof. Well, he said we all should be saying iodeen and ureen. :confused3

All that I care is that is available for free outside the medical clinic onboard, right? :confused3

Can anyone confirm that Bonine is available outside the clinic 24 hours a day if you get there and suddenly decide you are seasick? :confused3

Thank you! We are sailing in less than 30 days on our first DCL cruise! :cool1:

I love playing with words...always told my kids to "look it up". I did a search and found the Mercksource site that stated the proper pronounciation is bow-neen. This will help me as much as anyone else, because I was saying bah-neen!! :blush: Thanks for bringing the question out into the open! :wave2:

the Mercksource site that stated the proper pronounciation is bow-neen.

So is that "bow" rhymes with "ow" or "bow" rhymes with "oh"? :rotfl2:

It is not the brand name, bonine, but it is still available from guest services or medical (at least it was about a year ago, but I can't ever see that changing!) I thought the stuff worked great. I had a patch on for the first cruise that worked great, but then I got some of the stuff in my eyes and I switched to the free stuff. It was great!

I am stubborn and refuse to change. It will always be ba-neen to me!!! Darn kids knowing how to use the internet today.....okay, I admit, I tried to look it up, too! I just couldn't find it! :blush:

I'll add another vote for Bo-neen. I'm usually a stickler for pronunciation/spelling, but I hadn't even thought about this one before. :)
