Abstract

Vertigo is a sense of spinning dizziness. There is no ideal medicine for treatment of vertigo and dizziness. The duration of dizziness/vertigo: attacks may last for seconds or minutes (as in vestibular paroxysm) or hours (as in Menière’s disease or vestibular migraine). Diagnosis and treatment of vertigo remains a challenge for many physicians. Many drugs produce dizziness and vertigo side effects such as some antibiotics , diuretics, mucolytics and NSAIDs . Symptoms of Vertigo are usually managed with vestibular suppressants. Steroids are useful in selected patients. Neurosurgical treatment is chosen in lesions such as hematomas, tumors, vascular lesions, pathology of the cervical spine (cervicalspondylopathy)
