Motion Sickness

At Pittwater Pharmacy, our compounding department has formulated a motion sickness preventative in an easily accessible and very well tolerated cream that has been received with outstanding feedback. The compound cream incorporates the active ingredient scopolamine, which has been used internationally for motion sickness but has been unavailable in Australia due to issues with manufactures unstable delivery mechanisms. By developing scopolamine into a transdermal cream, we are able to enhance the effectiveness by avoiding the stomach, allowing continued application and a much more reliable delivery form when feeling unwell.

 

Advantages

- Quick absorption and easy application

- Therapeutic effect that lasts for 6-8 hours

- Very safe to use conjunctively with most medications (speak to

   one of our pharmacists to check if this medication is right for you)

- Cost effective

 

Applications

Applicable for all forms of travel associated nausea i.e. sea sickness, plane travel and car travel etc.

 

Further Information

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 in 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.
