Brief Answer:
up to 100mg per day in divided doses

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

you haven't mentioned how many mg each tablet has. The maximum daily dosage for meclizine is 100mg in divided doses. If - for example - you've got 25mg pills, you can take 4 of them each day that is one every 6 hours.

Taking more than the maximum dosage would put you into risk for side effects without worthwhile benefit.

Kind Regards!

Good news for me! They are only 12.5 mg tabs, so I can take up to twice as many as I have been.

Thank you.

Hi I am a 33 yr old male; I had an attack of vertigo almost three weeks back. I went to ER where they said it s Vestibular neuritis and I was put on 8mg Serc and 5mg Stematil. I took the meds for 5 days and was apparently fine. On the 8th day had this nausea with a little wobbly feeling; consulted a local doc and he started me on 16mg Serc for 5 days. The moment I took 16mg my head had this fullness feeling and my head was almost always wobbly. 5 days after I went to Neurology and they said my neurological exam was fine but I should take 5mg stem and 8mg serc for 7 days. The next day I consulted an ENT Surgeon and he said it s Viral Labyrinthitis and that I should be fine by the end of the present medicinal course. But even though I am taking the meds, my head still feels wobbly and have this occasional nauseated feeling. I am very concerned as I have to travel in a month and my symptoms does not seem to be getting any better. An advice is much appreciated.

Hello, I m a 24 year old female. I have been experiencing vertigo for the past week. If I move my head up down left right I have vertigo, feels like the environment hasn t caught up to me yet as I turn my head. It is not associated with any nausea vomiting no ringing in my ears. I have also never had any significant medical history. This past month I have had headaches on and off but they subside with medication. A few days ago I had stabbing pain behind my right eye which lasted a few hours. I don t have medical insurance yet so I ve been hesistant to see a doctor but would like to know what the cause of this vertigo could be.
