Hello, I have been diagnosed with BPPV last month. I have persistent lightheadedness, which improved significantly with higher doses of Stemetil. I relapse while using a lower dose. Please advise what to do.
Thanks Dr. Mustapha for your reply. I have been diagnosed of high blood pressure for over 8years well controlled. Echo and ECG are both within norm. Can I take the beta histamine only at night? Because I work during the day. Won't it affect me?
You can take Betahistidine 24 mg twice per day half an hour before meals : half a tablet before breakfast and half a tablet before dinner for 3 days ,then one tablet before breakfast and one tablet before dinner.
Hi Dr Gana, how are you now? Your case is a month old but I'm responding because I have seen patients going round n round without a proper diagnosis.
In your case, diagnosis of BPPV was made. So was any canalolith repositioning maneuver carried out?
If not, then that needs to be done, because that is the definite treatment of bppv and not vertin or stemetil. they're just addons.
