Medical information

General background information on travel sickness below.

There are two widely used travel sickness medications: hyoscine (Scopoderm and Kwells) is generally consider to be a little more effective than promethazine (Avomine). Promethazine is less sedative and therefore may suit some people better.

How to take

Take tablets or apply patch before a journey, or at the onset of symptoms. For long journeys Avomine tablets can be started at bedtime on the night before travel.

  • Scopoderm (hyoscine 1.5mg): self-adhesive patches active for 3 days (72 hours).
  • Kwells tablets (hyoscine 0.3mg): 1-2 tablets 30 minutes before journey, repeated 6 hourly as needed.
  • Avomine tablets (promethazine 25mg): 1 tablet at bedtime on night before travel or 1-2 hours before travel, then one 6 hourly as needed.


Anti-sickness medication may cause drowsiness. If effected do not drive or operate machinery. Not suitable for people with glaucoma, trouble with bladder or bowel obstruction, people taking drugs such as tranquillisers or anti-depressants or in pregnancy. Avoid alcohol if taking Avomine.

Side effects

Possible side effects include, drowsiness, dizziness, restlessness, headaches, disorientation, photosensitivity, visual disturbance, pupillary dilatation, dry mouth, and local irritation (with patch).

Other uses of Avomine

In addition to preventing travel sickness, Avomine can also be used to treat:

  • Nausea and vomiting due to other causes, including gastro-enteritis
  • Vestibular disturbance
  • Drug intolerance
  • Migraines
  • Infectious diseases
  • Radiotherapy

Travel sickness – general information

Travel sickness treatments work by damping down the confusion in the brain that occurs when motion tells the brain one thing and vision tells it another.

Anti-sickness treatment works best when taken before the nausea starts, although can be taken after the onset, when it will still help to reduce nausea.

Driving caution

In some people anti-sickness tablets have the side effect of tiredness. You should not drive or operate machinery whilst taking anti-sickness tablets unless you have experience of them and know they do not affect your alertness.

Reduce travel sickness

Some forms of motion are more likely to cause travel sickness than others. More people get seasickness than car or plane sick. Sitting in the back of a car tends to be worse than the front.

  • Sit near the wing of a plane or the centre of a boat
  • Where possible sit near an open window
  • Close your eyes, or better still try to sleep
  • Avoid reading or looking at screens (some disagree)
  • Fix the eyes on distant objects rather than nearby moving objects such as waves or other cars
  • Avoid alcohol or heavy meals, particularly greasy or spicy food that might sit on the stomach
  • Take breaks in a journey when you can if you are feeling sick
