SCOPOLAMINE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Motion Sickness: “Got this from the anesthetician before surgery to prevent nausea on waking. Kept it on for three days as I was travelling immediately after and am prone to motion sickness. WOW! This is how the other half lives! I could turn around from the passengers seat and help my daughter. I could look at my phone on the long ride. I could ride in the backseat of a stuffy vehicle with family in bulky winter coats. all nausea free. I didn’t experience the dry mouth, although the doctor said i might, he also advised DO NOT touch it, then touch your eyes. it will dilate your eyes for DAYS, so I was careful not to. This thing is amazing!”

For Nausea/Vomiting: “Had this with knee replacement surgery. Had horrible psychosis. Was hallucinating and paranoid and not aware of surroundings. Horrible feelings that I had no control over. Beware of using this drug. No one warned me of this as a possible side effect. Will NEVER use again.”

For Motion Sickness: “I have now had two experiences taking this patch. The first time was for a three day boat excursion. I get motion sickness really bad so I had a patch for the duration of our trip and were totally fine. I was so impressed with the patch and would have sworn by it. However! I just used it again for the second time this past weekend and I have been completely miserable ever since. I took it due to a trip to Disneyland and universal studios and I wanted to be able to ride the rides. Not only did it not work, but I felt nauseas, dizzy, lightheaded and had extremely bad blurred vision by the end of the trip. My mouth got so dry I could barely swallow. It’s as if any moisture throughout my mouth and esophagus has been sucked dry. I was scared to eat because it felt like I was going to choke. I’ve had the patch off for almost 48 hours and am still bed ridden from headaches, nausea, paranoia, memory loss and just an all around mental confusion. I’m out of work and miserable.”

Transderm-Scop (scopolamine) for Motion Sickness: “So I have used this patch for cruises and I always have to cut the patch in half and switch ears every three days. My mouth gets very dry even with half a patch. Although I do not get sick on the ship which has been a blessing the patch has left me with a dry mouth forever. I need someone to tell me what to do about it because I want to continue cruising. I don’t take any other medication. Each time I use this patch my mouth gets dryer and never bounces back .”

Transderm-Scop (scopolamine) for Motion Sickness: “This works, but has side effects.If you suffer from motion sickness like me, this patch allows you to do all kinds of activities that you would not normally do.Read the label: dry mouth & fuzzy close up vision after 36 hours on the patch, and motion sickness the first 48 hours after you take the patch off, are the most common side effects.I have used the patches numerous times over the past 10 years; I have been able to go on a VERY ROUGH one week cruise, fly, boat, and scuba dive in the ocean thanks to Transderm V.I have suffered through all of the “side effects” every time I used the patch, which were all manageable considering the activities I was able to enjoy because I was taking the patch.”

For Nausea/Vomiting: “I have a history of post operative nausea and right before having general anesthesia, the nurse put one of these patches behind my ear. She told me to leave it on for three days and that there is typically no side effects, just some slight dizziness. After surgery, I had no nausea. I removed the patch after the second day because I had read about possible withdrawal symptoms and didn’t want to get them. Sure enough after about 9 hours, I woke up in the middle of the night nauseous and dry heaving. Other side effects I had was extreme dry mouth, blurred vision, and hallucinations. Nausea lasted for several days and I took Dramamine and zofran to try and fight it. It wasn’t worth the benefit in my opinion.”
