In brief: Low dose Valium
I have good luck with low dose valium.
2mg every 8 to 12 hours can suppress motion sickness without significant drowsiness.

I use a 1/4 tablet of meclizine (non-drowsy Dramamine - over the counter).

In brief: 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.
