I’m one of those travelers who’s not easily affected by motion sickness. I don’t get sea-sick nor road sick as easily. But still, I have my limits. There was a time my friends and I had to travel from Batan Island to Itbayat over turbulent waves. Swells reaching up at least a story high that even local Ivatans get wary. Just to make sure, I popped in a Bonamine chewable an hour before our boat ride just to keep my dizziness in check throughout the journey. I don’t do it often but it gave me peace-of-mind (and tummy) as I travel across seas this time.
When it comes to kontra-byahilo (anti-dizziness), Bonamine is already a household name. Bonamine is Meclizine HCl, which is antihistaminic and anticholinergic. It not only controls dizziness but vertigo as well. I may not always use it, but I always keep a few tabs in my medicine kit, not only for me, but also for my travel companions. It goes well with other medicines but as always, check with your doctor for any contraindication.
