Vertigo

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query
Vertigo in hypertensive patients may be due to abrupt changes in blood pressure. You should get your blood pressure checked with morning and evening readings for consecutive 3 days and send me records.
Take vertin 8 mg three times a day.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available at prescription only.
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.
Thanks and regards

Brief Answer:
Vertigo

Detailed Answer:
Hi
you should take a muscle relaxant like a combination of diclofenac and thiocholchiside twice daily alongwith vertin 8 mg. Avoid any neck exrecises. Best is to use a collar for few days and rest the neck.
You should keep a ckeck on the blood pressure as the symptoms are more in morning means it can be some effect of medication also which needs to be managed.
ALL the Medicines i prescribed you will be available only on prescription.
Any further queries are always welcome.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks and regards
