Reviews for Antivert

Old biddy January 2, 2019

“Was prescribed for severe vertigo following a TBI that left me with vision issues. Only thing that makes it possible for me to function. No problems with drowsiness. Been taking daily for 2+years. Tried to use OTC but ended up falling multiple times. My vertigo is constant and ranges from where I feel like I'm spinning or like the whole world is on a roller coaster.”

“Within this past week I came down with laryngitis, a sinus and respiratory infection and ears filled with fluid. My PCP gave me 250mg Ceftin twice daily. That helped clear my chest and sinus infection within 3 days but I still had this lingering vertigo where I just did not feel right. Went to urgent care, the doc said ears were filled to the brim with fluid so he gave me prednisone for my ears and antivert for the vertigo. I took one 25mg tab and I can say it is quite noticeable how normal I feel again. I'm a bigger man so the drowsiness hasn't hit me as hard but I would fully recommend this to anyone with vertigo!”

“I was prescribed this medicine for treatment of Meniere's disease (constant vertigo & hearing loss due to excess fluid in the ear) this medicine knocks me out for at least 10 hours even after a small dose. It takes my dizziness away but it knocks me on my butt and I can't go to work for at least a day if I have to take it.”

“I use meclizine/antivert every day of my life.. Every 6 hours, I can take up to 50mg. Unfortunately, I have a horrible diagnosis of vertigo, followed with BPPV. I rely on this medicine so much, I feel as if it's becoming ineffective.. :( Had real bad attacks in November. I got admitted to the hospital, and it took multiple doses, & 14 hours for the room to just stop spinning completely.. I have bad issues with my vertigo still. Can't sleep without the room spinning, it's hard to drive sometimes, and it's hard to function without feeling like I'm about to get dizzy all over again. Ugh. Just hope it stops completely soon. Been dealing with this daily since April 2012..”

“Really effective albeit sedating. I have Menieres with horrible vertigo, and have tried several meds, including Ativan and Lamictal, but Antivert seems most effective verses costs and side effects. Definite "hangover" of grogginess from the Antivert, but I can muddle through if I don't take it too late at night.”

“I had vertigo that presented atypically with swaying rather than spinning. I took antivert for over a month, up to 3x per day, under doctor supervision before weaning off of it. It worked really well. No side effects, not drowsy the way that Dramamine is. I will take again if I have vertigo again.”

“Woke up with severe vertigo and vomiting. One Antivert tablet stopped the nausea, second pill 6 hours later stopped the vertigo. Only side effect was a little drowsiness. I did not drive, but i was able to do some housekeeping. Antivert was a blessing.”

“My doctor put me on this for vertigo. I had dry mouth and drowsiness but stopped the spinning. It was treating the vertigo from a perforated ear drum. ”

“I have taken Antivert for years. For some reason I cannot get it either from Medco or local pharmacy. It is an effective medication. Now I do not know what to do.”
