Transderm Scop Information

Adults who have motion sickness or are about to undergo surgery may receive a prescription medication called Transderm Scop® (scopolamine patch). This medicated skin patch is placed behind the ear at least four hours before these events to help prevent nausea and vomiting.
 
There is only one standard dosage for everyone, regardless of your age or weight. Each patch can last up to three days, although the amount of time you will need these patches depends on the reason you are using them.
 
Before using Transderm Scop, make sure your healthcare provider has information on any other medical conditions you may have. For some people, such as those with a certain type of glaucoma, this product should not be used. Also, this medicated patch may react with various other medications, so make sure to give your healthcare provider a current list of all vitamins, supplements, and prescription and nonprescription medications you are taking.
