What is the Scopoderm patch?

Scopoderm is a motion sickness patch Manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) which contains the active substance hyoscine hydrobromide. This is one of the most commonly used medications for motion sickness. The medication is absorbed through the skin to stop people from feeling nauseous or sick while travelling.

Because it is a transdermal patch (adhesive patch that delivers drugs through the skin), it is quick and easy to use and does not require measurements or water to be present when being applied. Applied before travel, it can prevent travel sickness symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and vertigo, before they begin, allowing passengers to enjoy their journey.

What is a scopolamine patch?

A Scopoderm patch can also be called scopolamine patch or hyoscine patch. Both names refer to the same anticholinergic drug. Hyoscine patch is a name more commonly used in the UK, while Scopolamine patch is more commonly used in the US.

How does Scopoderm work?

Motion sickness occurs when your body's internal balance system becomes confused when receiving different sensory signals whilst you're travelling. The conflict of seeing motion while not moving can cause people to feel nauseated when travelling in a car, plane, train and other methods of transportation.

Scopoderm travel sickness patches contain the recommended dose of Hyoscine 1.5mg, which has an antiemetic effect that helps prevent nausea, vomiting, and vertigo. As you travel, your eyes see motion, so they send a message to your brain to balance out your inner ear. Scopoderm alleviates motion sickness by blocking the receptors that send the message to that part of the brain so that travel does not make you feel nauseous thus preventing the symptoms.

How long does a Scopoderm patch last?

Scopoderm patches last 72 hours, so you won't have to remember to take the next dose or wait until you feel sick, which in many cases is too late as vomiting will make oral medication ineffective.

The patch is available at euroClinix in packs of 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10, with each patch containing Hyoscine hydrobromide 1.5mg. Scopoderm can be ordered online at euroClinix and delivered the next day, making it simple for last-minute travellers.

What is Scopoderm used for?

Scopoderm (also called an hyoscine patch) is available as a skin patch for adults. This medication is part of the antiemetics or anti-sickness medicine family and it is approved for use in motion sickness:

  • sea sickness (nausea patch for cruises or boats)
  • car sickness
  • plane sickness
  • train sickness

Does scopoderm work for hypersalivation?

Although usually used to treat motion sickness, the Scopoderm patch has many other applications. As a side effect, the patch can cause a dry mouth, which is why physicians sometimes prescribe these hyoscine patches to treat hypersalivation in individuals with Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, and other neurodegenerative conditions. It is also sometimes used before surgery to decrease saliva.

When prescribed off-label (hyoscine patch for secretions), this patch delays saliva production as the active ingredient is absorbed into the bloodstream. A doctor will prescribe Scopoderm if excessive salivation causes embarrassment, disrupts daily activities, or disrupts sleep. But you should keep in mind that the Scopoderm patches are not approved for use off-label - at euroClinix, this medicine will be prescribed and sold only for travel or motion sickness.

How to use Scopoderm?

Make sure to follow the directions on the label or pack, or those from your doctor. The patch works best when applied 5 to 6 hours before departure. It can also be used while travelling, if you feel nauseated. You should follow these instructions before using the patch:

  1. The first thing you need to do is remove the patch from its sealed pack.
  2. Hold the edge of the patch without touching the sticky side and remove the backing.
  3. Attach the patch to a hairless area of the skin behind the ear, and hold it there for ten seconds to ensure adhesion.
  4. Hands should be washed after applying the patch to the skin and again after removing it.
  5. After removing the patch, wash the affected area of skin.
  6. In the event that the patch comes off while travelling, it should be disposed of. The area of skin should then be cleaned and a new patch should be applied behind the other ear.

On a trip lasting longer than three days, you can remove the patch and apply a new one to the other ear so you can continue receiving the antiemetic medication without a break.

Can Scopoderm patches cause side effects?

Although mild, there are a few side effects of hyoscine patch that may occur when first applying it to the skin. The most common hyoscine side effects are:

Common:
  • Dry mouth (dryness of the mouth)
  • Dizziness and drowsiness
  • Blurred vision and enlarged pupils (sometimes only in one eye)
  • Inability to focus on close or distant objects

In some cases people may experience skin irritation from the patch which should die down after wearing it for a while.

Because of possible side effects, you should not drive if you are experiencing drowsiness / sleepiness or operate machinery.

In case of any serious side effects or an allergic reaction to Scopoderm, you should stop using the product immediately and consult your healthcare provider. For a full list of possible side effects, consult the patient information leaflet available for download on this page.

  • epilepsy
  • serious stomach, liver, bladder or kidney disease
  • are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • glaucoma
  • if you are allergic to the active ingredient
