Please let me know whether the vertigo was a single episode or still you have persistent vertigo. You have not mentioned about is there any positional variation of vertigo or not. your symptoms correlate to Secretory otitis media. Your Doctor had prescribed the correct medication. But should have added Nasal decongestant drops like xylometazoline or oxy metazoline. If the vertigo Symptoms are worse, you may to take cinnarazine
