My friend was diagnosed with vertigo in the hospital after a severe bout with vertigo. He is just as dizzy as he was when in the hospital for 7 days, released and is at home. Confined to the chair and unable to function, was given 25 mg of meclizane and is no better. Can he safely take more per dose?

This is the recommended dose of meclizine to prevent and treat vertigo:
Adults and children 12 years of age or older—The usual dose is 25 to 100 mg a day as needed, divided into smaller doses.
However, I would suggest that you talk to your doctor before changing the prescribed dose.

I have had many episodes of vertigo for many ,many years. With the last one I was given the diagnoses of Menieres disease. I was put on 25 mg 3 times a day. Anything less did nothing for me. I agree with Marvel tho, you should NEVER change your dose without your doctors advice. Good luck. I know what your friend is going through.
