What’s the difference between the prescription scopolamine patch and a product like Dramamine (Dimenhydrinate)?


25 May 2023

The scopolamine patch is a prescription strength motion sickness medication, unlike Dramamine. The patch provides longer duration of action, delivering a steady dose over several days compared to the need for frequent dosing with Dramamine tablets. The scopolamine patch’s controlled-release system ensures consistent medication levels and may result in reduced side effects like stomach upset and drowsiness, commonly associated with oral medications like Dramamine. The non-oral administration of scopolamine also eliminates the challenges of swallowing pills or experiencing nausea and vomiting. Additionally, the convenience of the patch may improve compliance by simplifying the treatment regimen. However, it’s important to remember that individual responses may vary.  Initiate a consultation at Runway today for personalized recommendations based on your specific needs.
