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 placed on the skin before travel. Scopoderm patches can prevent symptoms for as long as 72 hours, making it a highly beneficial option for those with a known susceptibility to motion sickness.
The Scopoderm patches contain an active ingredient called 'hyoscine hydrobromide', which belongs to a group of medications named 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 by the vestibular system, working from contradictory signals sent from the eyes.
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 that it is available in the form of a patch, which can be easily and discreetly applied behind the ear. This is an easier way to administer the medication for those who may find it difficult to swallow tablets. The effects of the Scopoderm patches last for up to 72 hours, making it is suitable for long journeys.
This medication is only available on prescription, which means it is not considered suitable for everyone. Most adults who suffer from motion sickness should not have any issue with this treatment. However, before using Scopoderm, it is important to consider certain precautions.
