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 .”

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 “Patch used for second general anesthesia experience since I vomited after the first time. I know they also switched me from a gas/IV combo to pure IV sedation, so although I did not vomit this time (yay!) I don’t know if I can attribute it to the patch or to the sedation change, but probably both.Please be aware these patches are NOT meant for long term use- they will have withdrawal effects! If you rebound you will have the very effects you were trying to prevent in the first place. For my purpose, after surgery, it’s worked great. I wouldn’t wear them for weeks at a time.”

For Motion Sickness “Have to take this when I am on cruises or would have motion sickness. 1st 5 yrs I took this no prob. The 6th cruise my throat closed up and could hardly swallow while eating. It dawned on me to try prilosec. It enabled me to swallow. This has happened the last 5 years over a 5 year stretch of cruises.”

For Motion Sickness “DO NOT USE THIS PATCH – I used it for a 7 day cruise and in hindsight probably didn’t need it for motion sickness as cruise ships are large without movement unless there is a rare turbulence. While on the patch I had cotton mouth, dry skin, and dilated pupils. After taking the patch off when I got home, I have suffered much more than any motion sickness could have caused. I have had severe headache, neck ache, upset stomach, dizziness, eye issues, and fatigue which has been difficult to be back at work when I planned to come home refreshed from a relaxing vacation. It has been 5 days and it is STILL HORRIBLE and I wonder if I will ever feel normal and good again! This drug should be BANNED!!”

For Motion Sickness “Used this for an Alaskan cruise (over a 10 day period). It worked great for the cruise. I normally get extremely motion sick but I maybe just had a slight sick sensation a couple of times during the whole trip. However, after I got home, a few hours after I removed the last patch, I became very nauseated. I ended up missing 3 days of work due to very bad nausea. I got some phenergran from my doctor that helped to relieve it. I’m not sure how long the nausea would have lasted without it. Probably won’t use the patch again.”
