Scopoderm is a treatment used to help prevent travel sickness. This proven treatment contains the active ingredient hyoscine hydrobromide that is delivered to the system through a patch that is placed on the skin. One patch can fend off the effects of travel sickness for up to 72 hours, which makes it ideal for long journeys, like on cruise-liners.
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 partner 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.
