More information about Kwells
Kwells is an effective treatment that can help those who suffer from motion sickness. Available in 300mcg tablets, Kwells are designed to melt in the mouth, making them extremely easy to take while on the move. The active ingredient contained is hyoscine hydrobromide, and they are the only travel medication that can be taken as late as 20-30 minutes before travel.
Travel sickness occurs when the brain becomes confused by contradictory signals received by the vestibular system (which controls things like balance) and the eyes. The vestibular system tells the brain that the body is experiencing motion, while the eyes tell the brain that the body is stationary. This confusion causes feelings of nausea.
The active ingredient in Kwells, hyoscine hydrobromide, effectively intercepts these signals, thereby preventing the vomiting reflex from being triggered and lessening symptoms.
Those who have experienced travel sickness will know how uncomfortable it can be, which is why medications such as Kwells are most beneficial for those who suffer from frequent bouts of motion sickness. This specific medication has the added advantage of being available in the form of a tablet that can be swallowed, sucked or chewed.
This method of delivery means the medication reaches the bloodstream fast so it is effective more quickly. For this reason, Kwells can be taken as late as 20 minutes before travel allowing for a more enjoyable journey.
When using Kwells tablets, the following instructions should be followed:
