About Transderm Scop®: The Travel Patch™

How should I use Transderm Scop®?

Use Transderm Scop® exactly as your doctor tells you to use it.
Transderm Scop® is a tan-colored circular shaped patch.
Wear only one patch at any time.


Do not cut the patch.


To help prevent nausea and vomiting from motion sickness:
  • Apply one Transderm Scop® patch to your skin on a hairless area behind one ear at least 4 hours before the activity to prevent nausea and vomiting.
  • If the treatment is needed for longer than 3 days, remove the patch from the hairless area behind your ear. Get a new Transderm Scop® patch and place it on the hairless area behind your other ear.
To help prevent nausea and vomiting after surgery:
  • Follow your doctor's instructions about when to apply Transderm Scop® before your scheduled surgery.
  • The Transderm Scop® patch should be left in place for 24 hours after surgery. After 24 hours the patch
    should be removed and thrown away.
Apply Transderm Scop® as follows:

Inside the Transderm Scop® package, you will find one Transderm Scop® patch. A tan-colored patch with a
metallic (silver) sticky surface is adhered to a clear disposable backing (see Figure 1).


1.Select a hairless area of skin behind one of your ears. Avoid areas on your skin that may have cuts, pain or
tenderness. Wipe the area of your skin with a clean, dry tissue.

2.Cut along dotted line on the Transderm Scop® package to open (see Figure 2).


3.Remove the clear plastic backing from the tan-colored round patch (see Figure 3).


4.Avoid touching the metallic adhesive (sticky) surface on the patch with your hands (see Figure 4).



5.Apply the metallic adhesive surface of the patch firmly to the dry area of skin behind your ear. The tan-
colored side of the patch should be facing up and showing (see Figure 5). Wash your hands with soap and
water right away after applying the patch, so that any medicine from the patch that gets on your hands will not
get into your eyes.




After removing the patch, be sure to wash your hands and the area behind your ear thoroughly with soap and
water. Note that the used patch will still contain some of the active ingredient after use. To avoid accidental
contact or ingestion by children or pets, fold the used patch in half with the sticky side together. Dispose in the trash out of the reach of children and pets.

If you use too much Transderm Scop®, call your doctor or local poison control center, or go to the nearest
hospital emergency room right away.
