What is Transderm Scop?
Transderm Scop is a transdermal patch which contains an anticholinergic called scopolamine. You can purchase the brand name Transderm Scop (1.5mg) above!
Transderm Scop is an anti-nausea and anti-vomiting patch, used after anesthesia and surgery or to prevent motion sickness. Nausea and vomiting are a common result of both of those conditions, though it is unknown why this risk is present following anesthesia and surgery, we know why it occurs in motion sickness. Motion sickness occurs when travelling in something, such as a car, boat, or plane. When you’re travelling in a car, for example, your eyes see surrounding motions different from what your ears are sensing, which sends mixed signals to the brain, resulting in motion sickness symptoms (nausea and vomiting).
Transderm Scop (scopolamine) is effective at preventing nausea and vomiting because it is able to correct natural substances that may be imbalanced as well as being able to block the signals that command the brain to react with nausea or vomiting.

What is Scopolamine?
Scopolamine is an anticholinergic sold as Transderm Scop, made by the Swiss multinational pharmaceutical company, Novartis. It is applied directly the skin and becomes effective within a few hours, with effects lasting for a few days. Transderm Scop can be purchased at My Drug Center as the brand-name product in 1.5mg; a valid prescription is required.
What is Scopolamine used for?
Scopolamine (Transderm Scop) is used to prevent nausea and vomiting as a result of motion sickness or following surgery. Motion sickness is when you feel nauseous during travel – usually in a vehicle, but it can also occur on boats, trains, airplanes, and even amusement park rides like roller coasters – and often (but not always) results in vomiting. Motion sickness occurs when the inner ear signals that you are moving but your eyes see a static view, as if you are not moving, which causes mixed signals and results in motion sickness. Sometimes, the anesthesia used during surgery can cause side effects; nausea and vomiting are the most common side effects of anesthesia and affects 20-30% of patients, usually within the first 24 hours following surgery. This is also known as post-operative nausea and vomiting (PONV); factors such as being female, using certain painkillers, and surgeries involving the ears or intestines can carry a higher risk for PONV.
How does Scopolamine work?
Scopolamine is thought to work by blocking the effects of acetylcholine in the brain which prevents communication from occurring between the vestibule (opening of the inner ear) and the part of the brain which controls vomiting.
How long does Scopolamine stay in your system?
Scopolamine has a half-life of about 9 hours, which means the medication will remain in the system for an average of 45 hours (just short of 2 days) however, the effects of the medication can last for longer, for up to days or even weeks in some cases. The exact amount of time it will take this medication to clear the system may vary between each individual based off personal factors.
