Product Summary

Kwells Kids 150 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 tell 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 the nausea we associate with travel sickness.

The active substance in Kwells Kids tablets is hyoscine hydrobromide, which temporarily reduces the effect of movement on the balance organs of the inner ear and the nerves responsible for nausea.

  • Kwells Kids tablets melt in the mouth, so absorption into the bloodstream is very rapid. They can be taken up to 20–30 minutes before travelling, or at the onset of sickness.
