Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.Dizziness
in elderly people is a commonest symptoms and can be attributed to numerous causes. Of all the causes, Otologic type is the most commonest which is commonly termed as BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo
Vestibular suppressants especially MECLIZINE
is very useful in acute episodes.
Brandt-daroff exercises performed over a period of 2-3 weeks will provide good response. Also, Epley's maneuver is highly effective but it has to be done by a qualified person like doctor or physiotherapist.
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
