Follow the printed instructions you have been given with this medicine. Follow this link for general instructions on how to use your skin patches.
One Scopoderm TTS patch should be applied to a clean, dry, hairless area of skin behind the ear five to six hours before travel, or the night before the journey. Don't apply the patch to broken or irritated skin.
One patch can prevent travel sickness for up to 72 hours. If only needed for a shorter time, the patch should be removed at the end of the journey. If longer protection is needed, the patch should be removed after 72 hours and a new patch applied behind the other ear. Do not apply more than one patch at the same time.
You should wash your hands after handling the patch. You should also wash the area where the patch was stuck after removing it. This is to avoid accidentally transferring any of the medicine into the eyes, which can cause blurred vision and dilated pupils.
You should try to keep the patch as dry as possible. However, short contact with water, eg in a shower or swimming, should not affect it. If a patch accidentally falls off it should be replaced with a new one.
