Kwells tablets product information

Kwells contains an active ingredient called Hyoscine which is an anti-sickness medicine. It works by preventing the confusing messages that occur during travel sickness from travelling to your brain. This prevents or relieves the symptoms of travel sickness.

Because it melts in the mouth, its works faster than the Scopoderm patches.


How to use

These tablets can be sucked, chewed or swallowed. A tablet can be taken up to 30 minutes before your journey, and another tablet taken every 6 hours. Do not take more than 3 tablets in 24 hours.  



Side effects of Kwells 

Like all medicines, Kwells can cause some side effects, although not everyone gets them.

The most common side effects associated are: dryness of the mouth, drowsiness, dizziness and blurring of vision. These side effects are usually mild but if they trouble you, you should speak to a doctor or pharmacist for advice. It is also important that you avoid driving or operating machinery should dizziness occurs.

If you experience these uncommon but serious side effects, you should stop using Kwells and seek urgent medical advice:

  • Signs of allergic reaction: difficulty breathing, swelling of eyes, lips or face and severe itching of the skin
