Medications for Vertigo Medications can help in some cases. However it’s from our personal experience and from talking with some of our readers that medications don’t really work that well for vertigo. If you’re lucky they’ll provide some brief relief from the symptoms but the root cause of the problem won’t be dealt with. When it comes to medications for vertigo there are many doctors will prescribe to help reduce the effects of common symptoms such as dizziness – but the attacks will continue. Some of the most commonly prescribed medications to help reduce symptoms of vertigo include: Antihistamines: This is one group of medications that is often prescribed to treat vertigo. Probably the most commonly prescribed antihistamine for vertigo is meclizine (Antivert). Meclizine works by preventing motion sickness and decreasing the severity of symptoms. Some of the side effects associated with this group of medication are dry mouth and blurry vision. Vestibular Rehabilitation: Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise regimen that helps relieve symptoms of vestibular disorders. The exercises and manuevers practiced with this physical therapy will help alleviate dizziness, abnormal eye movements, imbalance, and other vertigo symptoms. The goal of this physical therapy technique is to help improve compensation. There are 3 parts to this exercise for vertigo and they are habituation, gaze stabilization, and balance training.
