I would say the drug works wells as I am no longer SPINNING. I am however SLEEPY as heck. It is a worthwhile trade off because nothing is like spinning and whirling (then nausea and vomitting).

Comment:
i had an extreme case of vertigo (BPPV) in March 2007. i started taking this drug but stopped due to the drowsiness it created. i've since started the drug again for another bout with nausea and dizziness from the vertigo, but taking a much lesser dose in hopes of curbing the drowsiness it causes. so far, so good.
