How Scopoderm works

Scopoderm, just like the treatment Kwells, has the active ingredient hyoscine hydrobromide. It's also known as an antimuscarinic, which means that it helps to stop you from feeling nauseous or uncomfortable by blocking nerve signals to the brain's vomiting centres.

Motion sickness happens as a result of a miscommunication between the vestibular system and the eyes. This is because the eyes perceive motion, while the vestibular system, located in the ear, doesn't. Scopoderm prevents these messages, effectively treating sickness caused by motion.

Who can use Scopoderm

This is prescription medication, which means that it's not safe for everyone to use. People who should not use it are those with medical conditions such as kidney or liver disease, prostatic hypertrophy and epilepsy.

If you are placing an order online for Scopoderm, it is important that you mention in your consultation with our doctor if you are taking any other medications, so that you remain safe when taking this treatment. You should also ensure that you provide all the requested information about your medical history.

How to apply Scopoderm patches

Scopoderm is a patch treatment which supplies the active ingredient via the skin, so there is no need to take tablets. When preparing for your journey, one patch should be placed on a hairless, clean area of skin behind the ears five to six hours before the beginning of your journey. The patch can then be left in place for 72 hours after which it needs to be replaced with a fresh one. It is designed to stay in place even after bathing or showering, but if it does fall off before the end of the 72-hour period, a new patch can be used.

Possible side effects

Just like all prescription medicines, there is a slight risk of side effects. However, not all people using this treatment will experience side effects and some people may experience different effects from others. Side effects that have been reported include drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, blurred vision or hallucinations. There is also a likelihood of experiencing nausea and balance disturbances after the patch has been removed.

Although most of the commonly experienced side effects shouldn't be a cause for concern, you should tell a medical professional if they are bothering you or you start to experience anything more serious or worrying.

How to buy online

This medication can be ordered online at 121doc, but as it is a prescription treatment, we ask all our patients to complete a consultation when they place their order. The information provided will be checked by one of our doctors, who will provide a prescription, if it's appropriate. This prescription will then be passed to our pharmacy, where a licensed pharmacist will dispense it for delivery. All orders will be shipped for next day delivery at no additional charge. We have 3 travel sickness medications available, Avomine, scopoderm and kwells if you are looking for an alternative treatment.

What is included in the online consultation?

Our consultations include general questions about your health (e.g. blood pressure levels, current and past conditions), as well as specific questions related to your selected treatment. We will also request relevant personal information to complete payment and delivery.

All questions are necessary, and your answers and details will not be shared with any third-parties. Only our doctors have access to your medical information.

Will a doctor review my consultation?

It is a legal and medical requirement that a doctor first reviews all completed consultations. We have a team of in-house doctors and specialists who will ensure your selected treatment is safe for your use. All information is stored securely and confidentially.

Please note, we do not guarantee that our doctors will approve treatment.

What happens after I submit my order?

Your consultation will be sent directly to our medical team, where it will be reviewed by one of our doctors.

If your chosen treatment is deemed suitable for your use, they will issue a prescription. Your prescription is then forwarded to our pharmacy, where your medication will be dispensed and dispatched for courier delivery.

Is the price all-inclusive?

Yes. All 121doc orders include a medical consultation, a prescription and next-day delivery. There are no additional costs. We believe in providing a safe and easy-to-use service.

Can I place more than one order at a time?

Yes. However, certain medications may negatively interact with each other. Our doctors may not approve your order on this basis.

You can place multiple items in one basket, and complete a consultation for all.

If you wish to place a second order for a different medication, you will have to complete a separate consultation.

What are my delivery options?

We offer several delivery options:

  • Next-day delivery
  • UPS Access Point - convenient parcel drop-off and collection near your home or work address
  • Nominated-day delivery - choose the most convenient day for delivery

All these options can be tracked and require a signature on delivery. If you are not available, a friend or relative can sign in your place.

None of these options will incur an additional charge.

Is it safe to buy prescription medication online?

To ensure you are purchasing from a reputable company, you should look to see their country’s regulatory bodies verify them.

In the UK, this is the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Certificates can be viewed here.

How do I know which treatment is best for me?

Some treatments also offer the 'Advise Me' function. You will be asked questions about your lifestyle and needs, plus medical questions. You will then be presented with the advice of our doctors.

Is this service discreet?

Our patients’ privacy is of utmost importance. All your medical information is securely stored and only viewed by our doctors. We do not share your details with third-parties. We are also regularly inspected by various UK regulatory agencies, such as the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).

All orders will only show on invoices, bank statements, etc. as ‘HHC Ltd’.
