Brexit / COVID-19 update: Our services are running as normal.
Note: You must complete a short online consultation so that our doctor can ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. The above pricing should only be used as a reference. The final decision to issue this treatment lies with the prescribing doctor.
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. There is a very slight possibility of an allergic reaction, which may include a skin rash, wheezing and difficulty breathing, although this is extremely rare.
If you require travel sickness medication you can place your order online today at 121doc. However, we like to make sure that all our patients can use this medication safely, which is why we ask that you complete a quick and confidential online consultation. The information you provide will be checked by our qualified doctor who will provide a prescription if they feel it's appropriate. Upon approval of your consultation, you will be notified and your treatment will be dispatched from our pharmacy for delivery right to your front door. We have 3 travel sickness medications available, Avomine, scopoderm and kwells if you are looking for a different treatment.
