Re: Seasick medication
NEVER CUT A MEDICATION PATCH IN HALF.
It negates the timed released effects and dumps all the drug on your skin in one dose. Read the directions people!
From the box: DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Initiation of Therapy: To prevent the nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness, one Transderm Scōp patch (programmed to deliver approximately 1.0 mg of scopolamine over 3 days) should be applied to the hairless area behind one ear at least 4 hours before the antiemetic effect is required. To prevent post operative nausea and vomiting, the patch should be applied the evening before scheduled surgery. To minimize exposure of the newborn baby to the drug, apply the patch one hour prior to cesarean section. Only one patch should be worn at any time. Do not cut the patch.
