Transderm-V Drug Information
Transderm-V Patch Overview
This skin patch is used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by motion sickness or recovery from anesthesia and surgery. Transderm-V Patch works by correcting the imbalance of natural substances (acetylcholine and norepinephrine) that can occur in motion sickness. It also blocks certain signals to the brain that can cause nausea and vomiting. Transderm-V Patch is not recommended for use in children.
How to Use Transderm-V Patch
Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start using scopolamine and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Peel off the clear backing from the patch and apply it to a clean, dry, hairless area of the skin behind the ear. Press firmly for at least 30 seconds to make sure the patch sticks well, especially around the edges. The patch will slowly release the medication into your body over 3 days. Do not use the patch if it is broken, cut, or damaged. If you are using the patch to prevent nausea and vomiting from motion sickness, apply the patch as directed by your doctor, usually at least 4 hours before the activity that causes motion sickness. Replace the patch every 3 days until it is no longer needed. If you are using the patch to prevent nausea and vomiting after surgery, apply the patch as directed by your doctor, usually the evening before surgery. If the surgery is for a cesarean section, then the patch is usually applied 1 hour before the procedure to reduce the baby's exposure to the drug. Remove and throw away the patch as directed by your doctor, usually 24 hours after surgery. If the patch comes off or needs to be replaced, throw away the old patch and place a new one behind the other ear, on a clean, dry, hairless area. Use only one patch at a time. When throwing away the old patch, fold it in half with the sticky side together and throw away in the trash away from children and pets. Transderm-V Patch can cause temporary blurred vision and widened pupils if it comes in contact with the eyes. Therefore, after handling the patch, always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Also wash the area behind the ear where the patch was removed. After stopping Transderm-V Patch, you may experience dizziness, loss of balance, nausea/vomiting, headache, muscle weakness, or slow heartbeat. If these effects occur, they usually appear 24 hours or more after you stop Transderm-V Patch. This is a result of your body adjusting to being off the medication. Report any such reactions to your doctor right away. Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
