Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor required

An anti-vertigo drug, Betahistine is used for the treatment of vertigo associated with the Meniere?s disease (disorder of your inner ear). The medicine decreases the pressure in your ears, which is supposedly the reason for the sense of nausea, dizziness and vertigo related to the disease.

You would have had SOM (secretory otitis media) Fluid must have got collected behind the ear drum for which that procedure must have been done. They would have inserted a drainage tube (called a grommet) into the ear which gets expelled on its own after some weeks. The tinnitus & vertigo that you have is not on account of the minor surgery that you have undergone. The inner ear is responsible for the two symptoms of tinnitus & vertigo. Are you a hypertensive or diabetic? The PTA is normal which means the hearing is fine. Generally Meniers disease have the three symptoms of tinnitus, vertigo & hearing loss. Taking Betahistine 48 mg one tablet in the night for 3 months should help you get the required relief in your symptoms. You might have to it for a longer time if required.

I am 56 years old and do lot of work on computer/laptop. I started feeling slight giddiness once in a day or 2 in the evening hours after full days work. We have got a family history of vertigo (father, sister etc.). I used Vertin 8 mg twice a day. I feel quite relieved and sometimes again I feel the same. Secondly I am also doing neck exercises as prescribed in You Tube. Please suggest remedies how can I get rid of this problem. Since, I am an official connected with computer desk job I can not do away with this. This giddiness remains for less than a minute or so, when I need to catch hold of some thing to avoid loosing stability. No heart beat increases during this period. I do not have sugar, BP or any such issues except nasal allergies, which are also quite under control. I addressed a gathering for about 2 hours yesterday, on power point, after that I started feeling like sitting and could not stand comfortably. Please guide me how long can I use Vertin (betahistine 8 mg). Recently I got medical check up done, which was almost normal but slight marginal increases in triglyceride levels (270) and low D vitamin (14) for which I am using medicines like Rosuvas 5 mg and Nurokind D3 (1000 ug D vitamin) Best wishes.

Dear Sir there are multiple risk factors in your case which can predispose you to vertigo. Firstly your age. Second and maybe the most important, your sedentary work style with long hours spent watching the computer screen. This posture leads to cervical problems which can lead to transient vertigo. The presence of abnormal lipid profile may also contribute in the form of arteriosclerosis (thickening of arteries). Kindly consult a neurologist to check for cervical spine and carotid vascular anamolies.
