I get frequent attacks of Vertigo and when it happens I take Vertin 16mg for relief. Should I take it daily life long? I am 83yrs old.

Whoever wrote these steps has obviously never had to deal with real vertigo! I had a horrible episode and finally got immediate relief from Dr. Carol Foster's simple exercise treatment done at home. She has a YouTube video [3 min.] which shows you how and explains what is happening to you. "How To Treat Vertigo" by Dr. Carol Foster. It will absolutely save you.
