There are several OTC products to treat motion sickness; however, there are limited options for children or pediatric specific drugs. Transdermal scopolamine patches are indicated for use only in adults. In May 2012, Dramamine, an OTC product was introduced for children indicated in reduced drug dose. However, there is an unmet need for children specific motion sickness treatment products. New drug formulations are being developed which can be administered through alternative routes such as intranasal scopolamine spray. GT Biopharma, Inc. is developing a transdermal patch containing muscarinic receptor antagonist as a key ingredient. Industry players are also focusing on prescription to OTC switch of the motion sickness treatment remedies to expand their market reach and increase accessibility to patients. People with motion sickness often self-medication with vastly available OTC and traditional medicines.
