I was diagnosed with Vertigo and it was ruining my life. I went nowhere alone and had to seriously restrict my activities. My doctor prescribed this medication (12.5 mg every 6 hours) and it has been like a miracle. Now feeling totally normal again. It gave me back my life!

It takes away the dizziness but makes you sleepy as ever. I took one while at work and now its hard for me to keep my eyes open. I tried taking it so i wouldn't be dizzy at work and it just made me sleepy as heck. Not good. I wil not take this agian at work. Maybe before I go to bed. I will try that and tell you what it was like later.

Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. I have ringing in my ears and when my allergies are really bad it gets louder. Sometimes an antihistamine like this helps with not only the dizziness I get but also the ringing seems to be less noticeable.

Comment:
Had temporary vertigo/nausea associated with "floaters" (benign positional vertigo)in my right ear. Medication greatly improved discomforts until condition cleared. Also, performed a prescribed exercise, the "Modified Epley Maneuver," which helps move debris to the ear's canal exit.
