      Meclizine worked great for me with no side effects. Not sure why you think this medicine has any side effects other than make you slightly sleepy. Loratadine is a basic antihistamine to help drain the ear of any fluids. I took meclizine for a few days until the dizziness stopped.

      This sounds crazy to me maybe because I come from the medical field but my dose was 25mg per tablet. I Fontenot what pills you tried before but these two have very low probability of incidents since they've been around for over 30 years and it would be silly to think that a severe reaction would ensue. But if it makes you feel better to cut them in half, go ahead. This way you can see if you react to them which I doubt you will. Good luck.

      I'm not a pill popper either, nor do I let doctors control what I take. But like I said Meclizine is the only drug out there that stops the vertigo and nausea feeling, at least in my experience. Such a mild dose however, may not be as effective as a full one.

      But try and see.

      I take the 2 mg diazepam to stop the vertigo. That's what they found works when I had a bad episode and ended up in the hospital for 3 days. Was real bad. I couldn't even walk. Ambulance came and got me. Pumped me full of anti nausea meds. Riding backwards in the ambulance sucked, already feeling like that.

      Nope. My BP is normal most times. The stress I get from the vertigo and bills from doc appointments makes it go up a bit. Lol. Excersizes still not working after 4 months of doing them. Neurotologist app end of January

      Thank for getting back in touch i never had the spinning sensation just feel like I'm walking on a trampoline I feel like the walls are moving up and down iv had all the test done they have all come back clear it's not my ears whats causing the problem ive had all the tests done theyve come back clear. All the specialists ive seen keep saying there is an underlying problem but the specialists are baffled. Do you have the spinning sensation?

      I was feeling this way when I was going through perimenopause. It went away on its own but it took a while. Taking Dramamine seemed to help, it's a strange feeling but I know it because of the drop in estrogen. Have you considered this possibility?
