Vertigo Treatment

Font : A-A+

How can Vertigo be Treated?

  • Vertigo from benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or labyrinthitis is often treated with physical therapy.
Treatment for Vertigo

Epley maneuvers or repositioning maneuvers are used to move the head in a variety of positions and manipulate it to clear debris (crystals) from the semicircular canals and to reduce the inflammation that the debris causes.

Diazepam and meclizine are used to reduce the inflammation. If the inflammation is due to viral infection, then anti-viral medicines like acyclovir or valacyclovir are used.

I am having frequent episodes of vertigo. I am diagnosed with Mineare's disease. I had taken Cinnarizine earlier for a month and my vertigo stopped for a month. Then the Doctor prescribed Vertin 16 * 3 for 2 months but no help. The frequency has also increased to multiple times a day now. Now the doctor has prescribed Vertin 24 * 2 for a month. Any help would be appreciated.

When a person is diagnosed with Vertigo and are put on medication, are there any warning sings before hand that they are going to have a dizziness or does it come on instantly without warning?

Hi. In my case, yes thee are some warning signs like i am having some visual problems and headache. What I do is I close my eyes, if I feel like my surrounding is about to spin, i take the prescribed medication immediately(betahistine mesylate). The drug is a graet help in making vertigo manageable, if not prevent it. I hope this piece of information has helped.

You can figure out some onset hints such as Gas formation or blurness/dizziness but most of the times it will be sudden and you will be surprised. You will also noice that walking fast may be an onset for vertigo but not always.

I'm surrefiing through Vestibular neuritis.Irritation started while talking on cell phone. Does the signal of mobile affects the inner ear?

@Guest

I have suffered from BPPV for many years now...... I have tried the eply maneuver a few times. While I have no insurance and very limited finances. I am not sure I am doing the exercise correctly. It seems to help when I can tolerate doing it, but only for a while. I was admitted to the hospital 2 weeks ago and given valum intravenously that seems to be the only thing to ever actually help. Also it seems I have more, longer lasting, and intense attacks in the fall. Has anyone experienced this?
