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.
