Okay friends, visited primary care doc today, ear nose and throat doc says no vertigo, MRI was good to go (Thank goodness) so we are visiting another docyor next week for a VNG. In meantime I want something for the dizziness that will "possibly make it go away or relive it" doctor is okay with that but wants me on low dose valium, anyone out there had any success with valium for dizzyness. I have not picked up the prescription yet so I do not have it yet.

Do you get dizzy when you just stand up or sit or when you bend over or walking? If yu get dizzy when standing or sitting slow down when getting up and down did they check bp stanging,sitting,laying down,walking. Keep an eye out on bp. Try some dramamine it may control the vertigoo but you need to find ut why its happening I heard nothing of a ekg eitherm keep on toop of it don't take the valium the only reason I can think he even thought of that is he was thinking stress related. Let us know try the dramamine best of luck

When I was in the ER the gave me a script of Valium and Antivert for the vertigo and Vaeium. To be, Valium doesn't seem to help I think is matters worse. But th Antivert does help. I take it everyday
I went about a week and a half then was put on the meds.
You know really it was my idea to have a script the Antivert famtily doctor called in the meds at the pharmacy. I seem to be better but I did have mishap the other day subsided on Sunday, this past Sunday.
Anyway I hope you are feel better. Drop a line to let us know how you're doing.

Saw a "REAL" ENT in a nearby town, have been clinically diagnosed with menieres disease, so valium is the preferred drug of treatment. He has also given me 3 Decadron injections in my right ear drum. At this point it appears that I will have to have 3 more injections. I am up to 40 mgs per day of valium and 100mgs per day of Benadryl. Still having at least one bad episode of dizziness per day.

I was prescribed Valium for dizziness. I thought it sounded crazy, but I trust my doctor implicitly, so I tried it. It absolutely worked. It took the dizziness away within 2-3 days. Turns out, though a typical dose of Valium can certainly cause dizziness, the very low dose prescribed for this condition WORKS!
