In some people, motion of ships, airplanes, trains, automobiles, and buses increases activity of the nerve fibers of the inner ear, which are part of the body’s balance mechanism. The result is motion sickness, which is characterized by dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. A person suffering from motion sickness may experience one, all, or any combination of these symptoms. Scopolamine is an effective medication for the prevention of nausea and vomiting because it reduces the activity of the nerve fibers in the inner ear and acts on the motion sickness centres in the brain. Transderm-V is a small, flexible adhesive disc. When placed behind the ear, it delivers scopolamine to the skin surface from where it is absorbed into the bloodstream over a prolonged period of up to 3 days.
Only one Transderm-V disc can be used at any one time. Each disc may be worn for a maximum period of 3 days. Treatment with Transderm-V must not exceed six days, i.e., one disc worn for 3 days followed by a new disc worn for a second 3 days. Apply one Transderm-V disc on the hairless area behind one ear approximately 12 hours before the drug’s anti-nausea and anti-vomiting effect is needed. The disc may be worn for up to 3 days, and then it should be removed. If the disc is only needed for a shorter time, it should be removed at the end of the journey. If you wish to control nausea for longer than 3 days, remove old disc, then place a new one behind the other ear, on a different hairless skin site. The second disc may be worn for up to 3 days if needed. Discontinue using Transderm-V once the second disc has been worn for 3 days.
