I have written many times about how antivert has helped me out when I think an attack is about to happen. Whether it was the medication that helped or maybe I just wasn’t about to have an attack, I don’t know. I used to feel that way about valium but I stopped taking that because it seemed to be making me awfully tired. Of course antivert does the same thing. In the past couple of weeks I have taken the antivert and it almost seemed like really wasn’t helping much at all. In fact I felt worse the rest of the day and even the following night. I am starting to reconsider whether to take meclizine at all.
This would be a real turnaround for me because I have depended upon this med for a long time. I carry it with me wherever I go and at the slightest feeling of dizziness I take one, unfortunately taking this med means that I will be groggy the rest of day. But you probably remember that one doctor earlier this year told me to stop taking it because it didn’t help even though other doctors suggested that it did. It is all very confusing.
But the big question is what if I feel that an attack is about to come on, what do I do? Since I am on disability (with a private insurance company from my previous employer) I don’t drive very much and I spend most of my time in my home so when an attack hits I will just lay down. I will see what happens and let you know.
