Doesn't make sense, you don't take Dramamine because you're light headed. You take it as a prophylactic for motion sickness.

Try flying low level for hours packed in like sardines in a large cargo aircraft ...........
My 1st terrain flight in a C130, Hunter to Bragg, every seat taken, high winds, in flight rigging. EVERYONE except the pilots were puking. The garbage cans were overflowing. The Crew Chief and Jump Masters were puking out the doors. Puke all over the floors as we ran out of puke bags. (We need a puking emoji.)

The jump was canceled because we could not see the ground due to the high winds and bowing sand.

Dramamine would not have helped. Dramamine? Give me a break.

rr123, if you want to go SF, buck up troop. No whining. No excuses.
