Hi Peggy I have been diagnosed with Menieres, GERD / Silent reflux and asthma. I am a holistic therapist and have managed to stay off the inhalers by using holistic remedies and changing to a vegan low salt diet. I use SERC Betahistine here in the UK and find it does help but I was giving a prescription for a different make of Betahistine and it made me feel ill, diarrhoea and wheezy ...and didn't work well for the symptoms at all ...so I didn't finish the pack ...too scared the asthma aspect would be triggered off again. As soon as I went back to the other SERC Betahistine, I had no problem so the doctor has made a note to only prescribe that brand.
Hi I read your comment and thought maybe I should mention this. I have had the full spectrum of Menieres symptoms on a daily basis with my walking style varying from day to day ...either managing to sway or needing a walking stick. I was given Betahistine SERC from the Dr (I'm in the UK) and although it takes at least an hour to have an effect then only a couple of hours reduced symptoms, I am finding that by taking an extra dose 16mg x 4 instead of 3, my systems have lessened and my walking is better though still not able to walk in a straight line. When I got my prescription of Betahistine from a different doctor, it was a different company and I felt bad from the first pill and only got relief when I took 2 pills at a time instead of one. I got intense headaches and napped for longer as symptoms were wearing me out so now my doctor makes sure that I get the Serc Betahistine from the same company ....I have heard from other people on different medications that different batches can make a difference
