What is Scopoderm?

Scopoderm patches are used to treat travel sickness.

The patches deliver a small dose of hyoscine hydrobromide, sometimes known as scopolamine.

The brand name - licensed by GlaxoSmithKline - is a combination of the active ingredient and its method of delivery. Scopo- from the name of the active ingredient (scopolamine) and derm - the Greek word for skin.

The patches are applied to an area of skin behind the ear. Each Scopoderm patch provides up to 72 hours (3 days) of relief from travel sickness.

You don't need a prescription to order Scopoderm patches from our online pharmacy. If your order is approved before 3pm on a weekday, our pharmacy can dispatch your item the same day for a next-day delivery.


How does Scopoderm work?

Scopoderm patches contain an anticholinergic called hyoscine hydrobromide (Hyoscine). Hyoscine is also known as scopolamine, and can be extracted from plants or synthetically created.

This compound binds to receptors in the brain, blocking the signals between the vestibular system (inner ear) and the chemoreceptor trigger zone (vomit centre). This means the conflicting information never reaches the brain, so the vomit centre is not triggered.

Aside from treating motion sickness, hyoscine is also used to decrease the amount of saliva produced in the mouth. As a result, a common side effects of hyoscine - and indeed Scopoderm patches - is a dry mouth.

The patches only deliver a very small amount of hyoscine into the body. Because of this, the patches have a slow onset of action, and can take a few hours to start working. However, this also reduces the likeliness of unpleasant side effects.


How do I use Scopoderm patches?

For the best results, apply a Scopoderm patch 5 to 6 hours before travelling. One patch will offer relief for travel sickness for up to 3 days (72 hours).

Apply a single Scopoderm patch to an area of clean, dry, unbroken and hairless skin behind the ear.

Once you have applied the patch, avoid touching the patch, as the medicine may leak from the edge of the patch.

When you have finished travelling, remove the patch and safely discard it.

If you will be travelling for longer than 3 days, remove the already applied patch after 3 days and apply a new patch. Do not apply more than one patch at a time.

Remember to wash your hands each time you apply or remove a Scopoderm patch.

After removing a Scopoderm patch, wash the area the patch was applied to with warm water and mild soap.
