Scopoderm is a prescription medication that is clinically proven to prevent travel sickness. The active ingredient, hyoscine hydrobromide, is administered in the form of a patch, which is attached to the skin before travel. Scopoderm patches are able to prevent the symptoms of travel sickness occurring for as long as 72 hours, making it a highly beneficial option for people with a known susceptibility to motion sickness embarking on long journeys.
You can buy Scopoderm patches online at HealthExpress if you are concerned about travel sickness. Our three step service includes an online consultation, which is completely free and puts you under no obligation to purchase any medication. The consultation is reviewed by a doctor, who will make recommendations on travel sickness treatments based on the information you provide. You will then be able to place your order. We offer free overnight delivery on all orders so you can be confident you will receive the patches before you embark on your travels.
Why choose Scopoderm patches?
Scopoderm is a clinically proven medication which has a successful history of effectively preventing the most common forms of travel sickness. One of its most significant benefits is the fact that it is available in the form of a patch which can be easily and discreetly applied to the patch of skin behind the ear. This is an easier way to administer the medication for people who may find it difficult to swallow tablets. The effects of the Scopoderm patches last for up to 72 hours, meaning it is suitable for long journeys.
How does Scopoderm work?
The Scopoderm patches contain an active ingredient called hyoscine hydrobromide, which belongs to a group of medications called antimuscarinics. Hyoscine prevents motion sickness by interfering with the communication of particular nerve messages that would usually trigger vomiting and sickness. These nerve messages are sent from what is known as the "vomiting centre" in the brain, which would otherwise be activated after receiving signals of motion from the vestibular system which contradict messages sent from the eyes. For more information as to what causes motion sickness, visit our Travel Sickness page.
Are Scopoderm patches suitable for everyone?
This medication is only available on prescription, which means it is not considered to be suitable for everyone. Certain medical conditions, such as kidney or liver disease, prostatic hypertrophy and epilepsy, may mean that an alternative treatment is more suitable. The efficacy of the medication may be affected by certain other medications. You should make sure that you disclose all relevant medical information when you complete your online consultation, as our doctor will be able to confirm whether Scopoderm is suitable for you based on the information you provide at this time.
How to apply Scopoderm patches
You should apply a single patch to an area of hairless skin behind your ear five to six hours prior to beginning your journey. The patch will last for up to 72 hours, but you should remove it if your journey does not last this long. If your journey lasts for longer than three days, remove the patch and replace it with a fresh one after 72 hours has passed. The patch should remain securely in place for the duration of your journey and is designed to remain affixed during showering and bathing. If the patch does become unstuck you should dispose of it and replace it with a new patch.
Possible side effects
There is a small possibility that you may notice some adverse side effects while using this medication. You should be aware that side effects affect users in different ways, and you may experience one or a combination of the side effects that have been reported by other users. Possible effects include drowsiness, dizziness, hallucinations, dry mouth and blurred. You may experience some nausea and balance disturbance after you remove the patch if you have had it in place for longer than a day or two. If you experience any side effect that concerns you, it is recommended that you discuss this with a medical professional.
