Transderm-Scop , also known as scopolamine , is an anticholinergic which is used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by motion sickness.
This type of medication comes in the form of a patch. The patch is placed on the skin, behind the ear in an area that is clean, dry and hairless. In order for this drug to be effective, it must be placed on the skin four hours before it is needed. Each patch will likely last about three days.
Common side effects associated with Transderm-Scop include drowsiness, disorientation, blurred vision, dry mouth, confusion and hallucinations. If the side effects persist or become severe, contact a medical professional for assistance as soon as possible.
Transderm-Scop may occasionally be prescribed for other purposes, as directed by your doctor.
