New Onset Dizziness

Some people say they are dizzy when they just have a feeling of being "out of it" -- like a head full of cobwebs that you can't clear. Or you may have a continuous lightheaded feeling that remains even if you lie down.

Many medications can potentially cause this type of dizziness as an unwanted side effect.

Are you taking any new medications or have you recently increased the dose of a medication?

Yes, I think my dizziness may be a medication side effect.

No, my medications are the same.
