What is Scopoderm?

Scopoderm is a preventative medication for motion sickness that comes as a patch.

Dizziness, fatigue and vomiting while travelling are all signs of motion sickness, and while women and children between the ages of two and 12 are most at risk, it can affect anyone.

Scopoderm patches should be applied to the area of skin behind your ear, five to six hours before starting your journey. One patch provides protection for up to three days (or 72 hours). If you’re travelling for a shorter period, you should remove it when your journey ends.

How does Scopoderm work?

Motion sickness occurs when your eyes and your ears don’t send the same signals to your brain, which then confuse it. It normally happens while travelling via air, car, train, or boat, or on amusement park rides. Scopoderm is absorbed through the skin and prevents motion sickness by stopping the messages sent from the vestibular system (inner ear) from reaching an area of the brain responsible for the vomiting reflex. This reduces the severity of motion sickness symptoms.

Hyoscine hydrobromide is the active ingredient in Scopoderm. One patch of Scopoderm contains 1.5mg of hyoscine.

What doses of Scopoderm are there?

Scopoderm is a single dose treatment, so it only comes in one dose: a 1.5mg patch. If it doesn’t reduce your symptoms of motion sickness as expected, log in to your account and send our clinician a message. They may advise you to try an alternative medication.

How to use Scopoderm patches

You should use Scopoderm exactly as advised by our clinician. Here are the instructions.

  • It’s for external use only.
  • The patch comes placed on a hexagonal film. One side of the patch is tan and the other is silver.
  • Peel the patch from the film, holding the edges.
  • Press the silver sticky side of the patch onto a clean, dry, hairless area of the skin behind your ear. Avoid areas or skin that is cut or irritated.
  • Wash your hands after application.
  • Don’t touch the patch after it’s applied. If you touch it accidently, wash your hands immediately. Avoid any contact with your eyes.
  • One patch is effective for three days (or 72 hours). If you’re travelling for a longer period, remove the old patch and apply a new one behind the other ear. If you’re travelling for a shorter period, remove the patch once your journey ends. After removal, wash your hands and the area of skin where the patch has been.
  • If the patch comes off accidentally, discard it and apply a new one.

You can shower or swim with the patch on, as there’s little risk of it falling off if you’ve applied it properly. But you should avoid spending long periods of time in water whilst wearing it.

Apply only one patch at a time.

How long does it take Scopoderm to work?

Scopoderm starts to work within five to six hours of application. So you should apply it five to six hours before you start travelling.

What should I do if I make a mistake when using Scopoderm?

Always follow product instructions carefully when you use Scopoderm. If the patch is applied to the wrong area, remove it and apply it behind the ear as it’s most effective there. If you accidentally apply multiple patches, remove them immediately. Putting on too many patches may cause restlessness, confusion or hallucinations which can be severe. If you experience any of these effects, you should contact a healthcare professional immediately.

FAQ: Scopoderm

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How is Scopoderm different from other treatments for motion sickness?

Answer:
Scopoderm comes as a patch and it may be a strong treatment option for you if you don’t like to use or swallow tablets or capsules. Because you can wear it for up to three days, it’s longer lasting than any other medications for motion sickness.

Is Scopoderm similar to any other treatments?

Answer:
Scopoderm is the only motion sickness treatment that comes as a patch. But the active ingredient, Hyoscine, is also found in other motion sickness medications.

Can Scopoderm help with drooling?

Answer:
Scopoderm is a therapeutic option to control drooling just for severely disabled patients. So it’s not suitable for everyone for this purpose. It may also cause adverse effects.

A clinical study of the efficacy of Scopoderm in managing drooling showed the following results:

  • 69% reduction in drooling by the end of week 1

  • 80% reduction in drooling at the end of week 2

How effective is Scopoderm?

Answer:
Several clinical trials have shown that Scopoderm is the most effective motion sickness treatment. There are other treatment options available which may be less effective but are available as alternative medications. Which motion sickness treatment is right for you may depend on whether you’re prone to certain side effects, or if you’re allergic to any particular ingredients in specific medications.

Do I need a prescription for Scopoderm?

Answer:
No. Scopoderm is available over the counter at pharmacies or some supermarkets. But like any medication, Scopoderm can lead to side effects including blurred vision, drowsiness, decreased sweating and mild irritation or redness. We can advise you on treatments that are safe and suitable for you.

Why should I buy Scopoderm online with Treated?

Answer:
We’re taking healthcare and personalising it. Tell us about your health, and we’ll advise you on tailored treatments just for you. You can then choose which medication you’d like and how often you’d like us to deliver it to you, and the quantity of it each time.

We’ll provide you with aftercare support too. So our clinicians will check in with you on a regular basis to see how you’re finding your treatment. And if you have any questions for them, they’re on hand to help. All you need to do is log in to your account and send them a message.
