    Like all medicines I want them to work right away. I started out withVetigo, took the pill and laid down. It helped the vertigo but I still have my head swimming. Better than the alternative.

    The chewable tablets taste like mustard. I still get dizzy laying down turning from side to other side. Hope the physical therapy at end of this month helps with this vertigo.

    I was diagnosed with vertigo in the ER and treated with meclizine/25mg tablet. Took 1 tablet every six hours for about 5 days and it helped. Since the directions take as needed. I slowly cut down until I had gone without for several days and the vertigo returned. I am considering going to a ENT doctor to see if I should continue this way as the meds have not cured it.

    I had vertigo and some associated motion sickness. Med knocked it out within two hours after suffering with the vertigo for 2 weeks. I do have some sleepy moments (I take a short 30 b minute nap during my lunch hour.) But feel quite good after with no drowsiness after and ready for another four to six hours. I am sleeping a lot but I'm also no longer feeling like I am on the verge of faint ... Show Full Comment
