Yachting Monthly - - PRACTICAL SEAMANSHIP -

Whether pre­scrip­tion or OTC (over-the-counter), most drugs have pub­lished side ef­fects so do your re­search. If you have heart, blood pres­sure or prostate prob­lems, tell your doc­tor or phar­ma­cist, as some drugs may not be suit­able. Test it ashore well be­fore you leave to check for side ef­fects. this to be the most ef­fec­tive pre­scrip­tion anti-nau­sea and anti-anx­i­ety med­i­ca­tion that im­por­tantly causes min­i­mal drowsi­ness. Anx­i­ety can cause nau­sea and Prochlor­per­azine treats both. In many coun­tries Prochlor­per­azine is avail­able in 5, 10 or 25mg sup­pos­i­tory form, which can be more ef­fec­tive than tablets once vom­it­ing has started.

Al­ways have your drink bot­tle handy, and dis­solve re­hy­dra­tion pow­ders or tablets in your bot­tle to re­hy­drate ef­fec­tively

Re­search which med­i­ca­tion works best for you, as med­i­cal is­sues can af­fect your choice. Try it ashore first to check for side ef­fects
