Another antidote to seasickness

February 01, 2009

The article "Remedies Keep Seasickness at Bay" [Jan. 25] failed to mention one seasickness medication that has been a lifesaver for our family. My 20-year-old daughter has long suffered from motion sickness, so I was surprised when she wanted to take the Semester at Sea in her junior year at the University of San Diego. Almost four months at sea for someone with her predisposition to motion sickness seemed like a nightmare.

A fishing friend told us about Scopace, a prescription drug (generic: scopolamine). We got an abundant supply for her. I'm happy to report she did not suffer from motion sickness the entire 108-day cruise.
