Same problem, your body needs time to get acclimated to the difference (or change) in visual and physical signals. And usually you can (surprise!) take more of the same meds to make the problem go away. Anything that works for motion sickness, works for both kinds.
Everyone has slightly different reactions to motion sickness pills, so it may work for some and not work for others. If you do not have motion pills or do not want to take them, there are a plethora of other "remedies". A friend landed on drinking flat, warm, dark beer
before heading out to sea. About the only thing that seemed to work for her. Logic is it reduces anxiety and slows down the body's reactions. And some folks never find a solution. So for those who have mal de mer, keep trying.
