In brief: Yes

Scopolamine patches are fairly effective, but work best if applied the night before travel.
All drugs in this class share side effects of dry mouth, constipation, and sedation. They may also potentiate the effects of alcohol or other sedating drugs. Check with your doctor for interactions with any other medications you are taking or other underlying medical conditions.
