COVID-19 update: Our services are running as normal.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
