Travel sickness happens when there is a miscommunication in signals from the eyes and the vestibular system. This is because the eyes perceives movement and the vestibular system, which is located in the inner ear and controls balance, perceives movement. This results in the brain registering a feeling of nausea in an area known as its 'vomiting centre'. Kwells stops this from happening by preventing these signals from reaching this area in the brain.
It is suitable for most people to take as long as they aren't allergic to the active ingredient in this treatment, hyoscine hydrobromide. You may also not be able to take this medication if you have pyloric stenosis, myathenia gravis, glaucoma or ulcerative colitis. You should also make sure that you avoid taking Kwells if you are taking antidepressants or antihistamines, as these treatments aren't compatible and may result in an increased risk of side effects.
Make sure that you provide as much detail as possible about your medical history and current health during your online consultation so that our doctor can make sure that this is right for you, or recommend a suitable alternative if it's appropriate.
The recommended dosage for adults is one tablet every six hours. You should avoid taking more than three tablets during a 24 period. The tablets can be sucked, chewed or swallowed whole, which makes it easy to take, especially if you find it difficult to swallow tablets with water. Although children can take these pills, it's only available to order at 121doc if you are over the age of 18.
Just like any medication, there is a slight risk of side effects, although they won't affect everyone taking this medication. Possible side effects may include dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth, although these are usually temporary and very mild. Hallucinations and restlessness are less common.
