Ive tried many different meds from my Dr. and nothing has helped so he gave me the scopolamine patch. Ive read some reviews, but haven't found info on BPV and the pro's and con's of this drug. The side effects are horrible too. Thanks for your help.
I used it for vertigo for 6 mos, and it worked great. The only side effect I had was a very dry mouth.
SO... I have been taking Scopolamine 1.5.mg patch for over 4 years. It will help stop the sys. of vertigo. But PLEASE read all you can about effects of the drug before you start taking it, for me ... Dry mouth/Blur vision and sometimes jitters..for that I take Diazepam. Recently I had to have a pace maker, my cardiologist did not think that Scopolamine had anything to do with the bad heart and did not tell me to stop taking the drug. Lots of luck .
