Motion Sickness Treatment

Pittwater Pharmacy has a range of motion sickness treatments available

Scopolamine is a highly effective ingredient that is used in motion sickness medication.

Scopolamine is an anti-cholinergic; it works by inhibiting the action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which in turn blocks communication between the nerves of the vestibule and the vomiting centre of the brain. This also results in limiting involuntary movements in the lungs and in the gastrointestinal and urinary tracts. Additionally, gastrointestinal secretions and motility are reduced as well as inhibiting the secretion of sweat and saliva, all symptoms typically associated with bouts of nausea.
