How Vertest Tablet works

Vertest 8 mg Tablet is a histamine analog. It works by improving blood flow in the inner ear which reduces the pressure of excess fluid in the inner ear.

Vertest 8 mg Tablet additionally dampens down the nerve signals sent from the inner ear to the brain. This relieves the symptoms of Ménière's disease.
