would it hurt me to take this medication that I got in fall of 2010 to treat vertigo that I have experienced the past few days? Medication has been kept in dark and dry place and seems ok. Just want to know if it would hurt me to take.
Hello Allen... personally, I wouldn't take without consulting with a doctor again. The reason being... other conditions have symptoms similar to vertigo. When was the last time you had a full physical?
You are 2 years passed that date. They give you a one year expiration on the bottle which would put you in 2011 but we are in 2013 now. Seeing a doctor and getting checked out again will let you know why this is happening or if anything has changed. Are you affected by seasonal changes?
My husband has dealt with vertigo and has adjusted his diet eliminating most grains except steel cut oats for oatmeal, chocolate, sugar, honey, most fruits. He got a hold of a book called, "Know The Cause" which is also a program on our local TV network, channel 14 in Connecticut.
Perhaps getting to the root cause of your problem and eliminating things that set it off could help, too.
I wish you well, be safe for the rest and the best of your life...
