Default Patch Placement

Hi
I am leaving on the Summit in the next week and plan to wear the Patch. However I never realized it was quite so large - can it be placed anywhere on your body or must it be placed behind your ear. I have very short hair and its quite obvious. If it could be placed on your back or shoulder underneath your shirt or even on the underside of the wrist I would think it would be less obvious. Anyone have a clue???

Maybe you should call your doctor to find out for sure.....I can tell you that I saw a lot of people wearing the patch behind and below their ear which is where I believe it is needed (close to ear) to do its job. good luck

You could pop over to the "Ask the Pharmacist" area here on CM and ask.

I've only ever seen them sort of behind the ear, but if they in a place I couldn't have seen them?

THEY MUST BE WORN BEHIND THE EAR IN ORDER FOR THEM TO WORK PROPERLY. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, I left mine on too long this past May and when I returned home I felt a little dizzy for a couple of days.

Watch out for "side effect" from the patch--sometimes the resultant problems are
worse than the motion sickness. After using the patch, we have gone to Bonine
and found it very effective, without drowsiness or other discomfort. Some people
swear by the wrist bands. Sometimes, what works for one does not do the same
for another. Enjoy your cruise

Also use Bonine, mostly for those gentle rides, going around mountains on shore excursions. I usuall take mine at night, since they are a 24 hour medication, and can cause drowsiness.

Bonine is an over the counter medication--many people feel it is superior to
the traditional Dramime. The advice to take it at night is good.

Default Re: Bonine vs. the "patch"

If you ever take the time to read about all the potential adverse reactions to scopolamine you would never wear the patch. I was on a tip on Hollan American when an elderly passengers became psychotic. Th ship doctor on seeing the patch removed with gloves on and then washed his hands promptly. His shipboard office had a big sign hanging with the skull and bones over a replica of the patch. I can become deathly seasick and have had marvelous results with Bonine even on cruises where motion sickness bags were made available all over the ship.
