What is Kwells?

Kwells is an effective treatment that can help those who suffer from motion sickness. Available in 300mg 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.

How do Kwells tablets work?

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.

What are the benefits of Kwells?

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.

How do I take Kwells tablets?

When using Kwells tablets, the following instructions should be followed:

  • For use in adults, one tablet should be taken once every six hours as required.
  • No more than three tablets should be taken in a single 24-hour period.
  • They can be swallowed whole, chewed or sucked.
  • You should take the first tablet at least 20-30 minutes before you commence travelling.

Please note, while kids can take Kwells, we only sell the treatment for usage by adults and the information on how to take the tablets provided here is only intended to be used as a guide for those over the age of 18.

What dosages are available for Kwells?

Kwells tablets come in a standard 0.3mg (300mcg) dosage, which has been specifically formulated to maximise effectiveness whilst also minimising potential side effects.

Are there any side effects with Kwells?

Side effects are a slight possibility with this medication, but they will not affect everyone. Potential side effects may include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Visual problems

Less common reactions include hallucinations and restlessness. Though very rare, there is a small possibility that an allergic reaction could occur, which could cause wheezing, breathing difficulties and a rash. If you experience any of these, you should contact your doctor and seek immediate medical assistance.

What are the precautions/interactions of Kwells?

Travel sickness medicines are not suitable for use by everyone as there are certain conditions that may prevent its use, these include:

  • Those allergic to antimuscarinics or any of the ingredients in Kwells (hyoscine hydrobromide).
  • Those suffering from conditions such as glaucoma, pyloric stenosis, myasthenia gravis or ulcerative colitis, which will mean a more suitable alternative may be recommended.
  • Kwells tablets are not compatible with certain other medications, such as antidepressants and antihistamines.

For these reasons, it is important to ensure your medical history is as accurate as possible, so our doctor can make the correct recommendation as to which travel sickness treatment is most suitable for you. Although there have been no adverse effects recorded, it is also essential that you mention if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before ordering Kwells.
