Dizziness

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi everyone.

Last month I got told that I had labyrinths. After 4 months of suffering it's just getting worse. They've give me prochlorperazine 5mg tablets. I've only started them today but have been very dizzy of them. Does anyone know how long it will take to kick in? As I can't leave my house as I'm very unwell.

Any help.

Thanks Chloe x

    Prochlorperazine is an antiemetic.  Do they know what caused the "labyrinthitis" in the first place? Bacterial, viral?

    Hi Chloe - Im sorry to say thats the million dollar question.  Ive had mine 4 years now but it is improving Its finding the right medication.  They thought I had labs but it turned out to be migraine associated vertigo.  There is a website on facebook for it which is very helpful.

    It took 3 days for them to kick in. I had them for nausea.
