What Scopoderm 1.5mg Patches are and what they are used for
Scopoderm 1.5mg Patches contain the active substance hyoscine which belongs to the group of medicines called anti-emetics or anti-sickness medicines. They are used to prevent the symptoms of motion sickness such as nausea (feeling sick), vomiting (being sick) and vertigo (loss of balance), which can occur when travelling by boat, train or car.
Travel sickness occurs when your body’s internal balancing system becomes confused by receiving different messages – your eyes say one thing about the position of your body, but your balance mechanisms tell you differently. Anyone can suffer from travel sickness: children are more prone but often grow out of it as they get older.
