Re: Need Help! Feeback would be great!
I too am a young adult and dealing with this affliction. It has been a nightmare for me as well. I too took xanax at the beginning of this, and although it isn't bad to take small doses to lessen the severity, some state that it can cause compensation of the injury to lag...... For one to get better, its sad to say, but you have to feel miserable so that your body can correct it.
I would get off the medication slowly... drop it down every two days by .25 until you get to .25 itself, then slow down even more. Get off the alcohol cold turkey.... Thats a real issue that can have worse consequences... but it will also act just like the xanax... surpressing your vestibular system.
Remember, when you stop taking the xanax and stop drinking the alcohol, you may experience a rebound where you dont feel so great.. this should pass after a little while.
The treadmill is good.. But very challenging for the vestibular system.. start walking on it.... then increase slowly.
