Yes: Taken from the fda-approved package insert: "clinical results: in 195 adult subjects of different racial origins who participated in clinical efficacy studies at sea or in a controlled motion environment, there was a 75% reduction in the incidence of motion-induced nausea and vomiting." these results also held for postop patients getting the patch.

A 36-year-old member asked:

Anyone have any experience with transderm scop (scopolamine) ?

I prefer scop patch: I find that transderm scop (scopolamine) is both well tolerated and effective for motion sickness. 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.

Dry mouth and other: Many people get dry mouth but other temporary side effects include some drowsiness, blurred vision (be careful to wash your hands and not get the patch material into your eyes). Less commonly, difficulty emptying the bladder, confusion, hallucinations, memory changes, restlessness, changes in heart rate, and local skin irritation.
