Thumbs up STUGERON Results.........

Just returned from a trip to the Antarctic (you're correct in guessing that it was not on a sailboat) and that was my first opportunity to try Stugeron. As I have always been prone to seasickness I was eager to see if it would work for me and did it ever. I was able to purchase Stugeron online via a Canadian drug company. I have also found it available over the counter in drug stores in the BVI's.

I used it on every major passage for over a year. The only side effect for me was that it made me hungry.

Side effects........

for me were slight dry mouth and slight drowsiness. Google "stugeron" and you will get plenty of hits for online sellers. Interestingly, one website wanted a prescription, so I just went to another. I am SO looking forward to leaving seasickness behind on passages.

I also find Stugeron effective. I always start the night before leaving.

I bought from canadadrugsonline.com . Went fine but it does take several weeks to arrive. The 100 pill pack is only $35. I got the 15mg that is the normal size sold over the counter. I've heard that the "forte" dosage can cause serious behavioral side effects.

I've also adopted John Neal of Mahina Expedition's suggestion to take a vitamin drink like Emergen-C before leaving and a couple of times a day underway to stay hydrated. It also helps avoid the dry mouth taste.
