Motion sickness: OTC medications that help with this are typically antihistamines . Choices would include Dramamine or Benadryl (diphenhydramine). If you were to seek the advice of the doctor, the scopolamine patch is a very effective solution to this problem. It might be worth investigating this option.

Meclizine: Meclizine is a good, safe bet that you can take OTC. Hope that helps!

Dimenhydrinate: or Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) is effective, safe and available over the counter at most pharmacies. Enjoy your cruise. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
