Scopoderm Patch

Scopoderm patches are a treatment for people who experience travel or motion sickness. They are applied before starting journeys and a single patch can relieve symptoms for up to three days. Usually applied on a patch of skin behind the ear, Scopoderm patches can alter receptors in the brain to stop feelings of sickness occurring while travelling in a car, plane or on a boat.

Prices start at £13.99 for 2 patches

What is a Scopoderm Patch?

A Scopoderm Patch is used as a way of treating travel sickness. It can be used to relieve symptoms such as nausea, dizziness and vomiting, which can all occur while travelling by air, sea or car. The patches are applied prior to journeys taking place and a single patch can remain on a patient for as long as three days if required. One patch can be replaced with another right away if prolonged relief is necessary.

How does a Scopoderm Patch work?

Scopoderm Patches contain an active substance called hyoscine hydrobromide, which belongs to a group of medicines known as anti-emetics or anti-sickness medicines. When a patch is applied, the hyoscine inhibits the function of muscarinic receptors in the brain, preventing it from interpreting confusing signals. Signals from the area of the inner ear which manage a person’s balance are prevented from transmitting to the area postrema in the brain, which is responsible for causing symptoms of motion/travel sickness.

How do I use a Scopoderm Patch?

These patches should be used as described in the product’s information leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. A patch should be applied about 5-6 hours before leaving on your journey. If you will be starting your journey during the early morning, you can apply the patch during the evening before. The patch should be applied to a clean, dry, hairless area of intact skin behind the ear.

Each patch lasts for 3 days in total. If you are travelling for more than 3 days, you can take a patch off after 3 days of use and replace it with a fresh patch behind the other ear. Assuming you’ve applied the patch properly, it should stay on if you swim, bathe or shower. It is best not to stay in water too long though. If a patch does accidentally come off, carefully dispose of it and put on a fresh patch.

What are the side effects of Scopoderm Patches?

Scopoderm patches can cause side effects, but not all users experience them. The most common side effects that could occur while using these patches include the following:

  • Dryness of the mouth
  • Drowsiness and dizziness
  • Frequent blurring of vision and enlargement of pupils (sometimes in one eye only)
  • Loss of ability to focus on close or far objects (visual accommodation)
  • Irritation of the eyelids
  • Skin irritation

Other potential side effects are rare, but some can be very serious so any which cause concern to you should be reported to your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible. If you show symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as difficulty breathing and swallowing and swelling around parts of the face, then stop using this treatment and seek medical help immediately.

Can I use a Scopoderm Patch?

Scopoderm patches can be used by adults but if you are elderly then you will be more susceptible to the medication’s potential side effects. If these patches are meant to be used on a child, then that is okay provided they are aged 10 years or over. It is not recommended to use this treatment on children below that age.

These patches cannot be used by patients who have glaucoma or a history of glaucoma (pressure behind the eye). You should also avoid using the patches if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, unless your doctor advises differently.

As a precaution, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before starting Scopoderm patches if any of the following apply to you:

  • You have pyloric stenosis – a condition that affects your stomach
  • You have problems urinating due to a bladder obstruction
  • You have a blockage in your intestines
  • You have a metabolic, liver or kidney disease
  • You have epilepsy
  • You have had pain in the eyes, blurred vision or see rainbow-coloured halos around light

If you are currently taking or have recently used any other medications, then you should also make your doctor or pharmacist aware of these before you start using Scopoderm patches. In particular, you should highlight the taking of these treatments:

  • Other drugs that act on the brain
  • Antiallergic medicines
  • Antidepressants
  • Antiparkinsons and antivirals
  • Antiarrhythmics
  • Any medicine that contains alcohol
  • Other travel sickness medicines

What if I apply more than one patch?

Having more than one patch attached to your body can lead to various symptoms such as feeling restless, excited or confused. In cases of a higher overdose, it is possible you may become dizzy and experience hallucinations or fits. In particularly severe overdose cases, breathing difficulties and a coma could occur. If you accidently place more than one of these patches on yourself, then carefully remove them and contact your doctor or nearest casualty department immediately.

Dosage Instructions
A patch should be applied about 5-6 hours before leaving on your journey (or the evening before) to a clean, dry, hairless area of intact skin behind the ear. Use one patch at a time for a maximum of three days.
