Kwells

Kwells tablets are a fast and effective treatment for the symptoms of motion sickness. They’re commonly used by those who are embarking on journeys where they may be experiencing some degree of movement and suffer with symptoms such as nausea and vomiting.

Kwells contain the active ingredient, hyoscine hydrobromide which helps to relieve symptoms associated with travel sickness.

Travel sickness is thought to be caused by the brain receiving mixed messages from your eyes and vestibular system (inner ear, which is responsible for balance). The conflicting messages upon movement then cause symptoms such as nausea which can lead to vomiting. Hyoscine hydrobromide temporarily blocks these signals from the inner ear from reaching the brain, usually reducing your nausea and letting you travel without worrying.

Motion sickness doesn’t just affect your journey. You can still feel unwell after you’ve stopped moving, and it can have a negative impact on the rest of your day. Taking Kwells can help you to feel more like yourself and reduce the risk of your trip being spoiled by feeling sick.

Prices start at £6.99 for 12 tablets

What is Kwells?

Kwells is a brand of medication that’s used to treat nausea related to motion (travel sickness). It contains the active ingredient; hyoscine hydrobromide.

Kwells tablets are able to relieve symptoms of nausea in most, and is fast-acting, with results beginning to show within half an hour.

What is travel sickness?

Travel sickness is also called motion sickness, and as the names suggest, it happens when you’re on the move. Motion sickness can strike whether you’re on the road or on a plane, train or boat, and it’s all related to the signals that your brain receives.

When you’re travelling, your eyes tell your brain that the surroundings are stationary, but bumps in the road, turbulence, or choppy seas can interfere with these signals, and your inner ear will send conflicting messages to your brain. It’s this confusion that can often cause feelings of nausea.

Some people think that travel sickness only happens during childhood, and that you grow out of it as you get older, and whilst this is true for some, it’s also very common for adults to suffer with it as well. Others may think that the nausea associated with movement is a myth if they’ve never experienced it themselves, but those that suffer know otherwise.

How do Kwells tablets work?

Kwells tablets temporarily reduce the effect of movement on the vestibular system (the inner ear). It does this by blocking the signals sent from the vestibular system from reaching the brain. This means that your brain isn’t receiving conflicting messages and this should therefore reduce your symptoms of nausea whilst travelling.

Can I take Kwells?

Most people are able to take Kwells, which is great news if you suffer with travel sickness, but as with most medications, there are some people that need to take extra care or avoid the tablets altogether. You should speak to your GP for advice if you have any of the following conditions or health problems:

  • Allergic to any of the ingredients
  • Glaucoma
  • Narrowing of the stomach outlet
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Enlarged prostate gland
  • Over 60
  • Any problems with your heart, metabolic system, liver or kidneys
  • Ever had a sudden or painful inability to urinate
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Diarrhoea
  • Fever
  • Down’s syndrome
  • History of seizures or fits

There may be other medications that can help with your travel sickness, or your doctor may adjust the dose to one that’s safer for you to take, but don’t do anything without advice from your GP. There are also some medicines that might interact with Kwells and cause potentially dangerous side effects. These include drugs such as:

  • Amantdine
  • Antipsychotics
  • Antidepressants
  • Linezolid
  • Domperidone
  • Metoclopramide
  • Sublingual nitrates

If you aren’t sure if you’re taking any of the above, take your regular medication to a pharmacy and ask for their advice on whether you can take them alongside Kwells tablets.

What are the side effects of Kwells?

Some people have reported experiencing some symptoms whilst taking Kwells. These are known as side effects, and whilst not everyone experiences them, it’s important to familiarise yourself with them so that you know what to expect. Some of the most commonly reported side effects are:

  • Blurred vision
  • Dilated pupils
  • Dry mouth
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Increased body temperature
  • Restlessness
  • Confusion
  • Hallucinations
  • Increased seizures if epileptic

There are more side effects in the patient information leaflet that comes with your order, and it’s important to thoroughly read this before taking any of the medication.

Because Kwells can cause drowsiness, dizziness and confusion, please don’t take any of this medicine if you’re planning to drive. This can be extremely dangerous. If you’re planning to share driving with somebody else, you should find an alternative, non-drowsy travel sickness treatment, or find another person to drive in your place.

How else can I ease motion sickness?

As well as taking Kwells, there are other things you can do to minimise the risk of feeling nauseous whilst travelling without taking more medication. Some of the tried and tested methods over the years include:

  • Avoiding strong smells on your journey such as perfume and some foods.
  • Sucking a boiled sweet to help with altitude changes, especially on a plane
  • Have a clear view of the window
  • Make sure there’s good ventilation if you can. It might help to stand outside if possible on a boat, or open a window in the car or on a train.
  • Sit with your head tilted back and don’t read or play on your phone as this can exacerbate the symptoms of motion sickness.

How do you take Kwells?

Kwells can be either sucked, chewed, or swallowed whole. It’s advised that you take your first tablet around 30 minutes before you start your journey, giving it enough time to start working before you start moving. If needed (or on a particularly long journey), you can take another tablet 6 hours later. It’s important that you don’t take more than 3 within a 24-hour period, so if you suffer badly with motion sickness and you’ll be on the move for more than 18 hours, it might be useful to take a break before continuing your travels.

Dosage Instructions
Take ONE tablet every 6 hours, as required. Do NOT take this medicine more than 3 times in 24 hours.
