Frequently Asked Questions

Motion sickness is caused by signals getting crossed in our brains, where we can’t figure out if we’re moving or stationary. Our brain can’t make sense of the information from our eyes, ears and body which leads to a long list of symptoms from dizziness to queasiness to vomiting.

Eg. carsick, seasick, airsick




It’s estimated that one in three people get motion sickness at some point in their lives.

Factors that increase your chances of getting motion sickness:

  • Family history of motion sickness
  • Hormonal birth control
  • Inner ear disorders
  • Menstrual periods
  • Migraines
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Pregnancy

Motion sickness can come on fast. You may feel fine one moment and then suddenly
experience some of these symptoms:

  • Queasy
  • Clammy
  • Sick to your stomach
  • Increased saliva, nausea and vomiting
  • Cold sweats
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Irritability
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Pale skin
  • Rapid breathing or gulping for air

Antihistamines can potentially help clear up information to the brain, but can leave you drowsy, which may not be conducive to a great trip.

The Scopolamine patch is a prescription medication that comes in the form of a transdermal patch. It contains the active ingredient scopolamine, which is an anticholinergic medication used to prevent and treat motion sickness.

The scopolamine patch works by blocking certain signals in the brain that are responsible for causing motion sickness. The patch delivers a controlled amount of scopolamine through the skin, allowing for continuous and long-lasting relief from motion sickness.

Although the exact dosing instructions will be provided by your healthcare provider, in general, to use patch, you should first clean and dry the area behind your ear. Then, apply the patch to the skin behind one ear, making sure it adheres firmly. The patch should be left in place for the duration specified by your healthcare provider (usually up to three days) before replacing it with a new one. Wash your hands thoroughly after handling the patch.

Each scopolamine patch lasts up to three days, continuously delivering a controlled dose of medication. This extended duration provides consistent and effective motion sickness prevention throughout your journey or exposure to motion triggers. After three days, you would replace the patch to maintain the therapeutic effect. This longer-lasting patch reduces the need for frequent dosing and ensures continuous relief during travel or activities that may cause motion sickness.

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.
