Re: Can Meniere's be controlled?
Valium only helps the symptom of vertigo and dizziness - it doesn't treat Meniere's. As I'm sure you know, Meniere's is a ball of symptoms that can be managed but not treated. When I began taking a diuretic, I also felt an increase in dizziness and lightheadedness. Diuretics are powerful and even the lowest dosage can reduce your blood pressure, which is what is causing the vertigo/dizziness/lightheadedness. Once your body adjusts to the diuretic and blood pressure changes, the side effects should go away. I also agree that a natural approach is the best way to go; however for my personal situation, I unfortunately have not been able to find anything besides the valium to alleviate vertigo attacks. Luckily, I haven't had a vertigo attack since August; therefore, no need for valium - yippee! Wishing you the same.
