Overview

Introduction

Vertistar Plus 16 mg/10 mg Tablet is a prescription medicine used to treat vertigo. It is a combination medicine which relieves the symptoms of vertigo by reducing the nerve signals sent from the inner ear to the brain. It also works on the region in the brain that controls vomiting.

Vertistar Plus 16 mg/10 mg Tablet should be taken without food. Take this medicine as advised by your doctor, preferably at a fixed time each day. If you miss a dose of this medicine, take it as soon as you remember. Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment. Never stop this medicine suddenly without talking to the doctor.

Some common side effects of using this medication are dryness in mouth, nausea, indigestion, and headache. In some cases, it may cause a 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.

Take caution while taking medicine if you are suffering from liver or kidney disease. Your doctor should also know about all other medicines you are taking as many of these may make this medicine less effective or change the way it works.

How Vertistar Plus Tablet works

Vertistar Plus 16 mg/10 mg Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Betahistine and Domperidone which relieve symptoms of Ménière’s disease. Betahistine is a histamine analog which works by improving blood flow in the inner ear. This lowers the build-up of fluid pressure in the inner ear. Domperidone is a prokinetic which works on the region in the brain that controls vomiting. It also acts on the upper digestive tract to increase the movement of the stomach and intestines, allowing food to move more easily through the stomach.
