Vertirex 8 mg Tablet


Overview

Introduction of Vertirex Tablet

Vertirex 8 mg Tablet is a prescription medicine used to treat vertigo (dizziness), hearing problems and tinnitus (noise in the ear) associated with Meniere's disease. This medicine reduces the nerve signals sent from the inner ear to the brain and relieves the symptoms.

Vertirex 8 mg Tablet should be taken by mouth with food to avoid stomach upset. Take this medicine as advised by doctor and preferably at same time each day. If you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember. Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment and never stop this medicine suddenly without talking to doctor. However, before taking this medicine it is better to inform doctor if you are suffering from peptic ulcer, asthma, or low blood pressure. Some common side effects of using this medication are headache and nausea. In some cases it may cause sudden drop in the blood pressure when you change positions, so it is better to rise slowly if you have been sitting or lying down.

How Vertirex Tablet works

Vertirex 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. Excess fluid can send signals to the brain causing nausea, dizziness or spinning sensations (symptoms of Ménière's disease). Vertirex 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.

User Feedback


FAQs

Q. Can the use of Vertirex affect my blood pressure?

No, change in blood pressure is not very common with the use of Vertirex. In rare cases, it may lower blood pressure and may make you feel dizzy for a while, especially when you get up after lying down. If you experience any such symptoms, inform your doctor.

Q. What are the causes of vertigo?

Vertigo may be caused by either a sudden drop in blood pressure or being dehydrated. Many people feel lightheaded if they get up too quickly from sitting or lying down. Along with that, motion sickness, certain medicines, and problems with your inner ear (Meniere’s disease, acoustic neuroma) may cause vertigo. It is important to know that sometimes vertigo can be a symptom of other disorders (Multiple sclerosis, following head trauma).

Q. Is stress a reason for vertigo?

Mental stress can trigger vertigo. It can make many forms of vertigo worse, but will not, by itself, produce vertigo.

Q. Which food can trigger Meniere’s disease?

Foods with high sodium content may trigger Meniere’s disease. Also, dairy products, caffeine, and alcohol may also trigger Meniere’s disease. A 2-gram/day low-salt diet helps in the control of vertigo in Meniere’s disease.

Q. What are the triggers for Meniere’s disease?

Meniere’s disease can be triggered by conditions such as stress, overwork, fatigue, emotional distress, additional illnesses, and pressure changes. Along with that, certain foods and high consumption of salt in diet can also trigger Meniere's disease.

Q. What is Meniere’s disease? What are the symptoms of Meniere’s disease? Does it go away?

Meniere’s disease is a disorder of the balance and hearing organs in the inner ear. The symptoms include vertigo, fluctuations in hearing, tinnitus (ringing of the ears), and pressure in the ears. Along with that, one may experience dizziness which in turn may cause nausea and vomiting. The treatment for Meniere's disease depends on various factors. Hence, an open discussion with the doctor can help to determine the best treatment strategy in your personal case.

Q. How long should Vertirex be taken?

Duration of treatment with Vertirex varies from patient to patient. Some people respond rapidly to treatment while others may take some time. Hence, take your tablets regularly and wait for the results patiently.

Q. What are the common side effects of Vertirex?

Vertirex can cause mild stomach problems such as vomiting, stomach pain, stomach swelling (abdominal distension), and bloating. You can reduce the chances of getting these side effects by taking Vertirex with food. However, the absorption of Vertirex may get reduced when taken with food.
