The only thing the FDA says will stop mal de mer is the electronic Relief Band. It's used for post op nausea, and nausea of pregnancy (hyperemesis gravidarum). They zap your wrist every second. Sounds like hocus pocus, but I bought two several years ago for friends and family. I've put them on 9 people so far. 6 got complete relief almost immediately, one got partial relief, and two got no relief.
I recommend scopolamine, Relief Band, and Meclizine, staying above deck, and staying hydrated. So far I haven't had anyone on that regimen who stayed sick for days.

I also vouch for scopaline patches, I carry them onboard as a last chance drug if nothing else works. Unfortunately not available in Australia so I get them from the US. The patch works for three days and usually no more than two patches are needed before the body adjusts.
