Scopolamine is employed to prevent nausea and vomiting brought about by motion sickness or medications administered during surgical procedures. It belongs to a category of drugs known as antimuscarinics, functioning by inhibiting the influence of a specific natural substance on the central nervous system.

Uses and Dosage

Peel off the transparent backing from the patch and affix it to a clean, dry, hairless section of skin behind the ear.

Press down firmly for a minimum of 30 seconds to ensure secure adhesion, paying special attention to the edges. The patch will gradually release the medication into your system over a 3-day period. Do not use the patch if it is damaged, cut, or broken.

If you are using the patch to prevent motion sickness-induced nausea and vomiting, adhere to your doctor’s instructions, typically applying the patch at least 4 hours prior to engaging in the activity that triggers motion sickness. Replace the patch every 3 days until it is no longer required.

For those using the patch to prevent nausea and vomiting after surgery, follow your doctor’s guidance, usually applying the patch on the evening before the surgical procedure. In the case of cesarean section surgery, the patch is generally applied 1 hour before the procedure to minimize the baby’s exposure to the medication. Discard the patch in accordance with your doctor’s instructions, typically 24 hours after surgery.

If the patch becomes dislodged or requires replacement, discard the old patch and apply a new one behind the opposite ear, on a clean, dry, hairless area. Utilize only one patch at a time. When disposing of the used patch, fold it in half with the sticky side facing each other and dispose of it in the trash, away from children and pets.

This medication may induce temporary blurred vision and dilated pupils if it comes into contact with the eyes. After handling the patch, always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Additionally, cleanse the area behind the ear where the patch was removed.

Upon discontinuing this medication, you may experience dizziness, balance issues, nausea, vomiting, headaches, muscle weakness, or a slower heart rate. These effects usually manifest 24 hours or more after ceasing the medication and are a result of your body adjusting to its absence. Promptly report any such reactions to your doctor.
