Any thoughts on this med? Have you taken it and does it work for you? (If you want to know more about my symptoms see my thread "please help me!")

Re: Meclizine

I was just going to post about this. I just read that it can cause dizziness, drowsiness, etc. I was wondering if these are common side effects, as dizziness isn't really going to help my dizziness. I also wondered if it was safe to take while breastfeeding. Sorry, I only have more questions!

Re: Meclizine

in my personal case of dizziness/vertigo...meclizine doesn't help me. i tried it years ago before going to six flags, and all it did was make me all nervous, palms sweat, and jittery. it was dramamine less drowsy though, so maybe that' why, lol. i've go tthe actual meclizine now, and i woke up more dizzy the next day after using just half a pill i don't want to take more than that due to my anxiety and i'm afraid it will get me all hyped up again

hope it works for some of you other sufferers!

Re: Meclizine

I'm afraid it will make my dizziness worse also. One day I took Sudafed and I felt absolutely horrible. I just sat on the couch crying because I felt so bad. I don't want to feel worse.

Re: Meclizine

I tried Meclizine and it made me feel yucky so I asked for something else and was given Ativan and it works wonderfully for dizziness. I just spent an extremely busy weekend and had to take some and it made the weekend bearable.

Re: Meclizine

Meclizine made the dizzines more manageable for me. It didn't get rid of it, but when I just couldn't take it anymore I would take one. it's vestibular suppressant so it does slow compensation. If you are at the beginning of this, you might want consider taking something when you need a break from all the dizzies. If it's not meclizine i'm sure there is something else out there. When i first took meclizine I didn't know it slowed compensation and I still got better in about 6 months. So, I think for me it only helped me. Some people get really sleepy on meclizine, but I didn't
good luck

Re: Meclizine

i didn't want to make a whole new thread, but had a question related to this.
is there a patch that an ENT prescribes that called Scopol or something like that? in some of the reading i've done, i've seen somehting like that and a friend said something about it too. i guess you put it behind your ear or soemthing??? just curious. or is it the same exact thing as meclizine but in patch form???
