Hello,

Vertin is decreases your vestibular activity which your doctor has diagnosed to be the cause of your dizziness. Once you don't have dizziness for a week, you can start reducing the dose and start vestibular adaptation exercises.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Noble Zachariah, Internal Medicine Specialist
