Default best sea sickness med

Dad is planning a trip to the rigs soon and more often then none I get sick. Its that initial sickness and then im "better" but still feel like crap. I really wanna do this overnighter to the rigs and don't want to be sick.

ive tried drammamine. Anyone have any good recommendations, when to take it etc. Since I will be out a while should I take every 4 hour etc?

Thanks. Ill try just about any recommendation.

This is coming from working on a boat as a deckhand and growing up fishing: the most effective sea sickness medication is the patch that you put behind your ear. I have honestly never seen someone that wore one get sick.

Could I take that with patch? Or is that overkill? Keep suggestions coming. Thanks.

If you think about it and plan for it you will get it .. just don't think about it .. It's a mental state, or everyone would get sick.. I never have, guess I have to many other thing to think about.
