What are Kwells Travel Sickness Tablets?
Kwells 300 microgram tablets are used for the fast and effective prevention and control of travel sickness. Travel sickness happens when the brain receives mixed messages. Visual messages from the eyes info form the brain that the immediate surroundings are stationary, but a delicate balancing organ in the ear tells the brain that you are moving. This conflicting information triggers nausea we associate with travel sickness.
The active substance in Kwells tablets is hyoscine hydrobromide. Hyoscine hydrobromide temporarily reduces the effect of movement on the balance organs of the inner ear and the nerves responsible for nausea.
Because Kwells tablets melt in the mouth, absorption into the bloodstream is very rapid and they can be taken up to 20–30 minutes before re travelling or at the onset of sickness.
How to help avoid travel sickness
- Sit with the head tilted back to stabilise the balancing mechanism in the ear.
- Ensure the vehicle you are in is well ventilated.

- In an aeroplane, you can ease the pressure on your ears by sucking a boiled sweet during take off and landing.
- Avoid strong smelling food, smoke, perfume, or petrol fumes.
