We, French people, have this saying that the only cure against mal de mer is to find a meadow where you can lie under an apple tree….! Try it.
Otherwise, there is this one week program at the French Navy Hospital in Brest where they nauseate you to near death, and cure you. It is tough and efficient but requires significant motivation on the part of the patient.
Pick your choice!
All the best,

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.
