Scopaderm Travel Sickness Patch
Scopoderm 1.5mg Patch is used to prevent and treat the symptoms of travel sickness eg. feeling sick, dizziness, light headedness, 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 thisn 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.
Scopoderm 1.5mg Patch is suitable for adults and children over ten. Scopoderm should not be used by anyone who has glaucoma or a history of glaucoma (pressure behind the eye) or are allergic (hypersensitive) to hyoscine or any other ingredients of the patch.
