Thanks for your query.

Vertin contains Betahistine, a drug used for Vertigo (dizziness). It mainly acts on the inner ear structures, which are responsible for maintenance of balance. These inner ear structures when affected can lead to dizziness for which Betahistine is recommended drug.

This drug can sometimes cause milder side effects like headache, insomnia, nausea, gastritis etc.

The high levels of LDL have to be dealt with fat restrictions in the diet and anticholesterol medications and the Vit D deficiency by Vit D supplements. Do discuss with your treating doctor about the same.

Hope I answered your query.

Please do let me know if there are any other concerns.
