"Queasy Drops" for Seasickness

Two months ago I was contacted by Jim McGee from Queasy Drops, a company that sells lozenges containing natural remedies for seasickness, who offered to send me some free sample. I told him I'd be glad to try them out.

The "drops" themselves look like hard candies, and come in flavors including cola, ginger, green tea with lemon and sour raspberry. They're less than $6 a box and are available online at as well as at, and at some retail Walgreens and marine supply stores. It's a natural formula that's safe for pregnant woman, so there are no side effects.

While we haven't been on any ships in rough waters since getting the samples, my wife found them very effective for car sickness. I also had a chance to test them during a 50K run I did recently. My stomach started to turn sour around mile 28, and sucking on the drops provided fast relief. I'm sold on them, and I hope you'll give them a try.
