I started taking this to treat Vertigo. 25mg 3 times a day. It took 3 dosages to begin working, but once it started working it took away the spinning sensation. Makes you VERY sleepy. I slept a lot, but would rather sleep than be dizzy and nauseous. My advice: give it a try, but it will take a little while to work, despite my Dr. saying it will work in an hours time.

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). I'm more afraid of the spinning than the medicine. My dr. says there is no inner ear infection but it is still scary to know you are spinning for ???? reason.
