Welcome to Health Care Magic

Your father is having complaints of severe dizziness, head spinning, imbalance. He was on medicines of seizure. With available information I fail to understand why his seizure medicines were stopped? Recently he has been diagnosed with cervical spondylitis.
From this information there is possibility of two things behind his problem.
First is Spondylosis itself. As dizziness, imbalance are main features in spondylitis along with neck pain and headache. Medicines like Vertin (Betahistine) or cinnarizine are given for relief in dizziness.
Secondly he is also hypertensive. Hypertension is also a risk for dizziness and imbalance.

Visit a doctor and take opinion regarding his high BP and spondylitis. He will improve in no time.
