I take this medication for the vertigo associated with Minears (inner ear disorder). Other than "cotton mouth", I have had no ill effects. The drug is somewhat effective when I have an attack.

I started taking this to treat Vertigo. 25mg 3 times a day. It took 3 dosages to begin working, but once it started working it took away the spinning sensation. Makes you VERY sleepy. I slept a lot, but would rather sleep than be dizzy and nauseous. My advice: give it a try, but it will take a little while to work, despite my Dr. saying it will work in an hours time.

For the most part it's stopped my vertigo, but it's made me SO tired, VERY irritable, very blurry/dry eyes, a little constipated, some insomnia, and I still get a bit dizzy!
