Caption: Seasickness. A woman with an anti-seasickness skin-patch behind her ear watches a ship at sea. Her hair is blowing in the wind, revealing the small round skin-coloured patch, which contains 1.5mg of scopolamine (hyoscine). Motion sickness is a common complaint. It is caused by disturbance of the organ of balance in the inner ear, leading to uneasiness, nausea and sometimes vomiting. One solution is for the sufferer to look at a distant point on the horizon, which can help restore a sense of balance. Another cure is to wear a patch on the skin (transdermal) that slowly releases the drug scopolamine into the body. Scopolamine is an antiemetic and hypnotic alkaloid found in henbane.
