The tabs you are taking may give temporary relief and you may get alright if there is no root cause.
If you are not relieved of symptoms consult a neuro physician and ophthalmologist(if advised)
For vertigo because of its multi various etiology the following investigations are needed
1) A complete blood test
2) ECG
3) CT Brain
4) Carotid Doppler
The neuro physician will decide what type of investigation are needed.
Find the cause and treat accordingly. You will be alright.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

A drug and its effects wears off in about 5 half lives...
The half life of stemetil is less than 8 hours...that means, in less than a day, you should be alright.
If not, you have to be investigated...
Some people benefit by the use of promethazine - Discuss with your doctor...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
