Question: vertin 16 mg tab use in tuberculomas
Answered by Dr. Praveen Tayal 3 hours later
Thanks for posting your query.
Vertin is an antivertigo drug given for symptomatic relief of dizziness or vertigo.
It is not given for treatment of tuberculosis. Your daughter must be having dizziness either as a complication of brain TB or an inner ear problem.
The reports attached are suggestive of tubercular lymphadenopathy- of supraclavicular lymph nodes.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
