Is there a medicine for motion sickness that doesn't make you drowsy?

Not really: All meds for motion sickness do, including bonine / meclizine. If you know ahead of time, ask your pmd for scopolamine patch, this helps some people and does not cause significant drowsiness, but is rx only. Also try ginger. Fresh ginger (chewed, don't have to swallow pulp!) or extract helps many people.
