My mother is 73 years old. Has suffered acute ischemic brain stroke recently. She is taking tab levesam 500 mg bd. She is experiencing vertigo-positional. This could be the side effect of the medicine. My question is, can we give her tab. Vertin ,to counteract her vertigo?

Dear lybrate-user, positional vertigo is not a side effect of levesam. Instead it is a disease itself bppv. The drug vertin only acts when their is associated vestibular rehabilitation excercises and then treated with integrated balance therapy provided their is no bppv.in bppv treatment is by particle repositioning maneuvures and there is no role of madication. Sincerely.dr. Vilas misra.

1. Take adequate night sleep 2. Eat at regular intervals. As starvation/gas can trigger migrain 3. Avoid things that can trigger migrain. Common triggers include alcohol, caffeine or poor sleep. Inculcate good sleep practices like having a regular bedtime schedule and avoiding naps, caffeine and tv before bedtime. 4. Don't take stress- pursue an enjoyable activity or verbalising frustration to reduce stress and improve mental health. 5. Avoid foods that you know triggers your migrain. 6. Hot packs and heating pads can relax tense muscles. Warm showers or baths may have a similar effect 7. Drink water. “dehydration can be a big cause of headaches,” for this homeopathic treatment is very effective for more details you can consult me.

Drink more water to combat dehydration and increase blood volume. As dehydration is the most common cause of low bp. Follow a healthy diet. Eat small, low-carb meals to prevent your blood pressure from dropping sharply after meals. Add more salt to your diet to increase your blood pressure. Go slowly. Instead of jumping out of bed in the morning, breathe deeply for a few minutes and then slowly sit up before standing. Limit alcoholic beverages. Get regular exercise to promote blood flow. Be careful when rising from lying down or sitting. To help improve circulation, pump your feet and ankles a few times before standing up. Then proceed slowly. When getting out of bed, sit upright on the edge of the bed for a few minutes before standing. Elevate the head of your bed at night by placing bricks or blocks under the head of bed. Avoid heavy lifting.

It sounds like you are having orthostatic hypotension. It is not a serious condition. You must strengthen your leg muscles and use certain postural techniques to prevent the dizziness. You may contact for more guidance on these exercises. Also please get hemoglobin, blood sugar and blood presure checked. Any abnormality in these can also make you feel dizzy. Hope this helps.
