    Suggest remedy for occasional dizziness

I have been dizzy this week. I almost passed out Monday night and had to hang onto the door frame with both hands and thought I was going to pass out. That was scary!! I seem to get dizzy when I get up out of bed or a chair and I have been doing so slowly. I worked out twice this week and didn t have any dizziness. I went out with my friends last night and danced several times and didn t have any trouble. I had a dizzy spell once before and doctor prescribed meclizine. I have taken one of those the last 3 days but doesn t seem to help.

Well come to HCM
Such symptoms of dizzy feel mostly happens due to orthostatic hypotension and what your given history is suggestive of this, most of such condition is self limiting, you need to take care for good hydration, second watch for low hemoglobin, I think routine cardiac evaluation would be advisable here, given medicine is questionable, every thing would be fine and this is nothing to worry, take care.
