Bonine Dosing for Motion Sickness

For preventing and treating motion sickness in individuals ages 12 years and older, the recommended Bonine dose is one or two tablets (25 to 50 mg) once daily or as directed by your healthcare provider.

Bonine usually works best if you take it before motion sickness symptoms begin, although you can expect some relief even if you wait until symptoms develop. Taking it one hour before your embarkation is usually sufficient to prevent motion sickness.
