Table of contents:

Transderm Scop is a prescription medication used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by motion sickness, medications used during surgery, or cancer chemotherapy. It is a skin patch that contains scopolamine. Scopolamine is a belladonna alkaloid with anticholinergic effects and can be administered as a transdermal patch. Scopolamine works by blocking the action of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is involved in regulating nausea and vomiting.

Uses and Dosage

Scopolamine comes as a patch that should be applied to the hairless skin behind your ear at least 4 hours before its effects will be needed. The patch is to be left in place for up to 3 days. If your treatment needs to go beyond 3 days, remove the current patch, and apply a new one behind the other ear.

When used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by medications used with surgery, follow your doctor's directions, and leave the patch in place for 24 hours after your surgery. Make sure to carefully follow the instructions on your prescription label and ask your doctor or pharmacist for any clarification. Use Scopolamine patch only as directed.

To apply the patch, follow these instructions:

  1. After washing the area behind the ear, wipe the area with a clean, dry tissue to ensure that the area is dry. Avoid placing it on areas of your skin that have cuts, pain, or tenderness.
  2. Remove the patch from its protective pouch. Peel off the clear plastic protective strip and discard it. Do not touch the exposed adhesive layer with your fingers.
  3. Place the adhesive side against the skin.
  4. After you have placed the patch behind your ear, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
