Scopoderm TTS 1.5 is a transdermal therapeutic system (TTS) that releases a programmed amount of active ingredient, scopolamine passing through intact skin into the bloodstream for a period of up to three days.

Motion sickness goes by many names such as travel sickness, train sickness, car sickness, boat sickness, simulation sickness or air sickness. It occurs when the body perceives a variance between what the eye sees and the vestibular balance system in the inner ear calculates. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, dizziness and fatigue. Some or all of these symptoms may be present and they may be felt intensely. Relief is usually experienced when the sufferer is no longer in motion. Sometimes the symptoms may remain for several days, even when the motion that caused it initially has stopped.
