Re: Just released form hospital
I just had my first bout with vertigo on June 30th. I have never had anything hit so fast, or so hard. Friend I was with said to go lay down... OMG thought that the world couldn't spin any faster till my head hit the pillow. Boy did I get up FAST. Spent 2 1/2 hrs in E.R and I am on Meclizine (first drug to take with onset) If that dosen't do it in a half hr, I have to take 1 mg of Lorazepam. Yup a tranquillizer. I told the Dr. I wasn't nervous, just dizzy, and he said it's actually the BEST treatment for vertigo, but they like to use Meclizine as first choice.
Hope you feel better, and it never visits you again.(me either)
