Hyoscine Hydrobromide is a type of medicine called an antimuscarinic (or anticholinergic). Hyoscine hydrobromide is sometimes known as scopolamine. It is thought to prevent motion sickness by stopping the messages sent from the vestibular system to reach an area of the brain called the vomiting centre. This area of the brain coordinates the vomiting reflex.
