Drug Interactions With Scopolamine Patch

More Detail on Drug Interactions With Scopolamine Patch

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when the scopolamine patch is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Anticholinergic Drugs
Using scopolamine patches with anticholinergic drugs could increase the risk for side effects. Do not use these medications together without your healthcare provider's approval and supervision.
 
Any Oral Medications
At least theoretically, the scopolamine patch may decrease the absorption of oral medications into the bloodstream due to its effects on the digestive tract. This is probably insignificant for most medications, but could cause problems in situations where very stable blood levels of certain medications are desired.
 
Cholinergic Drugs
Scopolamine patch and cholinergic drugs work in opposite ways. Combining these medications could make both less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before combining a cholinergic medication with a scopolamine patch.
