Scopolamine Patch - Overview
The scopolamine patch, marketed under the name Transderm Scop, is a prescription transdermal patch used in the prevention of nausea and vomiting. Push Health can connect people who might need a scopolamine patch with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe scopolamine medication, including a scopolamine patch, when appropriate to do so.
Scopolamine - Mechanism of Action
The scopolamine prescription patch typically utilizes a transdermal patch system to deliver scopolamine medication. Scopolamine medication itself is an anticholinergic agent and a belladonna alkaloid. Scopolamine binds to muscarinic receptor sites in the parasympathetic nervous system and affects smooth muscles that are sensitive to acetylcholine. It is believed that scopolamine functions by impeding communication (cholinergic transmission) from the reticular formation of the vomiting center and the vestibular nuclei, implying a central nervous system effect. Through the transdermal patch, scopolamine medication attains peak levels in the plasma at around 24 hours with initial amount being detectable at 4 hours. Scopolamine has an observed half-life of approximately 9.5 hours and only a small percentage of the unchanged version of the drug is excreted in the urine. Scopolamine prescription medication can also block the secretion of sweat.
Transdermal Scopolamine Patch - Dose and Cost
Scopolamine patches are typically available as circular, flat, continuous release patches containing scopolamine 1.5 mg that are placed behind the ear (postauricular). With this design, Transderm Scop patches are made to deliver scopolamine 1 mg over three days. Scopolamine itself is a viscous liquid that is embedded into a drug reservoir into the patch. A scopolamine patch (Transderm Scop) is a moderately affordable medication available for $7 per patch at many pharmacies once a prescription has been written for the medication. The cost associated with a scopolamine patch may be covered by the cost of one's insurance plan. Additionally, scopolamine coupons may be available online for people who are looking to reduce the cost even further. Scopolamine patches should be stored at 20° C to 25° C.
Can I Buy A Scopolamine Patch Online?
The scopolamine patch requires a prescription from a medical provider in the United States before it can be dispensed by a pharmacy. As a result, scopolamine OTC (over the counter) is not available and one cannot simply buy scopolamine online. However, Push Health helps people who need a scopolamine patch connect with a medical provider who can prescribe scopolamine medication, including generic scopolamine patch, when appropriate to do so.
Scopolamine Patch - Side Effects
Scopolamine prescription medication can cause side effects but is generally tolerated well. Side effects from scopolamine use include dry mouth, urinary retention, visual changes and drowsiness. Scopolamine medication should generally not be used in conjunction with other medications or in patients with glaucoma, seizures, psychosis, intestinal obstruction, bladder obstruction or the elderly. People who have had hypersensitivity or allergic reactions to scopolamine or other belladonna alkaloids should not use the medication. The scopolamine patch and alcohol should not be used together. Any questions regarding scopolamine's side effects should be discussed with one's pharmacist and medical provider before use.
