Re: Meclizine dosage
You'd have to take a lot of Mec to O.D. on it. I've been told by my doctor that taking 25 mg 3 x a day along with Ibuprofen is okay. I don't see why Tylenol would be any different. You could check Mec online, it will tell you what meds not to take it with.
I've had 2 Mec tablets at once. When you haven't had them in awhile, 2 seem pretty strong. After the 6th time or so, 2 don't seem like that much. Your body adjusts to it.
I would try to get your doctor to refer you to a specialist, and if you haven't seen one for his dizzy issue yet, you might want to start with an ENT or Neurologist.
The clinic doctors won't do anything for you but prescribe drugs (which aren't very helpful) or tell you to do bedrest (which is good). I've seen many clinic doctors. If your husband's had this before and he hasn't been through any treatment or tests, he should see someone that can help rid this from coming back.
An ENT or Neurologist will run tests and try to rule out what the issues are. It could be nothing more than a slight case of BPPV (crystals in the ear) which, with some people, can be cleared after a couple of appointments with a vestibular PT.
Sorry for overloading you. I've been through all of this, and hate to see you waste lots of money and time with him suffering. It can be a really long haul if you're not seeing the right people. If he's had this before, I'd say he shouldn't try to clear this on his own. There's a re-occurring problem and it needs the attention of someone who can pinpoint what's going on.
I've had dizzy spells many times. If you don't treat it, it does come back. Vestibular PT's are very good too at trying to rule out things.
good luck to you both!
