It works beyond question!!! Using it has saved my life from misery!!! It is hard to get prescribed now, psychiatrists steer away from it even though it works basically all the time with a proper dosage,
100% - Unfortunately, not every doctor knows this and I have no idea why! My family doctor is a migraine specialist and a sleep specialist and is well known. He said this is one illness that when doctors get together they can not definitively tell you what is causing the vertigo in most people. Yes there are the attacks with the crystals floating in your fluid and messing up your balance and the Epley Maneuver works and then there is the other that is not caused by that. Antivert works for some but has never for me. Some Doctors try sterroids, that does not work for me. He prescribed Xanax instant release at first .25 and I honestly can't remember how many I took but it worked within a couple hours. I have been taking .50xr (extended release) before bed for three years and have been fine. Lots of stress lately and it has gotten worse. I take .50 instant release for spin in am and go back to sleep and it's gone in an hour or two.
The majority of my attacks have always come on when I am actually RELAXED after all the stress is gone. No idea why. Had MRI's, Cat scan nothing there to be causing it. If your doctor says no it doesn't FIND A NEW DOCTOR! But as with anything be careful how much you take. Increase slowly and do not abuse. If at any time you feel jumpy like you need it and you do not have vertigo... don't take it you don't need it.
I have been dealing with vertigo for over two months and have also dealt with it three years ago. I am reading that Xanax helps but my question is white dosage? Please help Thank you
I too suffer from vertigo, almost on a daily basis and I accidentally found out how Xanax can help with the symptoms of vertigo when I took it for something else and it cured the symptoms of my vertigo. I only take it when it gets bad but it helps tremendously.
I currently suffer from chronic vertigo. I am in the beginning stages of seeing an ENT doctor and a neurologist. Currently I find if I take 2mg xanax before I go to bed it keeps the vertigo under control. If the vertigo appears when I wake up in the morning I will start with 1mg xanax and go up there from there to subside the dizziness, nausea and vomiting. Dr.'s have yet come to a conclusion on what is causing this severe vertigo. CT scan has come back normal. MRI is next.
Yes it can be used for the treatment of vertigo. It works to treat anxiety which can be a major cause of vertigo.
No, it is not , plus alprazolam is very addicting.
Alprazolam is used in the treatment of anxiety; depression; panic disorder; tinnitus; dysautonomia and belongs to the drug class benzodiazepines.
