hello, I suffer from vertigo attcks with severe sickness and am taking Serc for this. I seem to be having more attacks lately and in between attacks have a very dizzy head most of the time. I do not know whether the dizziness is due to the vertigo or if the high blood pressure tablets that I take also are causing this.I have had these attacks tfor about 7 years now but the dizziness in between attacks is more recent. Should I be trying another treatment?
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Chronic vertigo can occur due to ear pathology.
Drugs like Betahistine, Dimenhydrinate and Cinnarizine can be helpful when used in combination.
Additional usage of Vitamin D and Ginkgo biloba may be tried.
Vertigo exercises are also helpful.
