Scopolamine – Mechanism of Action
The scopolamine patch (Transderm Scop) utilizes a transdermal patch system to deliver the medication. Scopolamine itself is an anticholinergic agent and a belladonna alkaloid. Scopolamine binds to muscarinic receptor sites in the parasympathetic nervous system and affects smooth muscles that are sensitive to acetylcholine. It is believed that scopolamine functions by impeding communication (cholinergic transmission) from the reticular formation of the vomiting center and the vestibular nuclei, implying a central nervous system effect. Through the transdermal patch, scopolamine attains peak levels in the plasma at around 24 hours with initial amount being detectable at 4 hours. Scopolamine has an observed half-life of approximately 9.5 hours and only a small percentage of the unchanged version of the drug is excreted in the urine. Scopolamine can also block the secretion of sweat.
