I have the transderm scop (scopolamine) patches and dramamine. Which one will work better with less side effects?

In brief: 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.
