Vestibular Migraines

Have you ever experienced vertigo, dizziness, nausea and vomiting with or without a throbbing headache. You may have gone to the ENT or your primary care physician and all your tests were normal. This could be vestibular migraines.

Treatment for vestibular migraines is similar to that of other migraines, which may include medicines to either stop or prevent an episode. Some of the recommended medications include:
Beta blockers
Calcium channel blockers
Tricyclic antidepressants
Serotonin or serotonin/norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs or SNRIs)
Making lifestyle changes can also help to reduce the frequency and severity of vestibular migraines.
