Drug Description


Transderm-V Patch is a medication that contains the active ingredient scopolamine and is used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by motion sickness, anesthesia, narcotic pain medicines, and surgery. It is a transdermal patch, which means it is applied to the skin and delivers the medication through the skin and into the bloodstream over time. 

Transderm-V Patch works by releasing scopolamine, a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called anticholinergics. Scopolamine works by blocking the action of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine in the brain, which helps to reduce nausea and vomiting. 

Use and Dosage 

Follow the specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider or the instructions on the packaging for proper application and removal. Transderm V Patch should be applied behind the ear, on clean, dry, and hairless skin. The patch should be applied at least 4 hours before the anticipated motion sickness or surgical procedure.  

Here is a general guideline for using Transderm V Patch: 

  1. Clean and dry the area behind your ear where you will apply the patch. Make sure the skin is free from any cuts, irritation, or hair. 
  2. Open the foil pouch and remove the patch. 
  3. Peel off the protective liner from the patch, being careful not to touch the adhesive side with your fingers. 
  4. Apply the patch with the adhesive side directly onto the skin behind your ear. Press firmly to ensure it sticks well. 
  5. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after applying the patch. 
  6. Leave the patch in place for the prescribed duration, typically up to 72 hours (3 days). Do not remove or reapply the patch unless instructed to do so by your healthcare provider. 
  7. If you need to replace the patch, remove the old one carefully and dispose of it properly. 
  8. Apply the new patch to a different area behind the other ear to avoid skin irritation. 
  9. If the patch falls off or becomes loose, replace it with a new one. If it does not stick well, you can use a medical adhesive tape to secure it. 
  10. After removing the patch, fold it in half with the adhesive side together and dispose of it properly, out of reach of children and pets. 

Used Transderm V Patches should be folded in half, adhesive side together, and safely discarded in a waste container out of reach of children and pets. Follow proper disposal methods to prevent accidental exposure to the medication.
