Yes: Both medicines are used for nausea but act in different mechanisms and target nausea of different etiologies.

A 22-year-old member asked:

Mother gets moderate rebound anticholinergic symptoms after transderm scopolamine removal. What can be used for treatment/prophylaxis?

Dr. Shaym Puppala

Rebound cholinergic: Scopolamine is anticholinergic, and rebound symptoms after discontinuation of long-term treatment therefore would be cholinergic, such as urinary frequency, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, salivation, slow heart rate, rather than anticholinergic like inability to urinate, constipation. Meds with anticholinergic side effects such as Diphenhydramine (benadryl) can help such symptoms.

Deep sea fishing: use transderm scop (scopolamine) or dramamine?

I prefer scop patch: I find that transderm scop (scopolamine) is both well tolerated and effective. Perhaps even better is half a scop patch, but if you do this, carefully wash your hands after cutting / applying to keep the scopolamine off your fingers & out of your eyes. Another prescription favorite is zofran (ondansetron) which is quite effective for nausea.

Usually OK: I've read of some who don't like Ibuprofen products during flu like illnesses (if dehydrated the kidneys don't dispose of it as efficiently), . However, i haven't seen any problems using the two (zofran (ondansetron) & ibuprofen) with most kids. Neither Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen are fine together.
