Epley: The canalith repositioning procedure (epley maneuver) is recommended in patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
The modified epley maneuver also is effective in patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
Vestibular suppressant medication is recommended for symptom relief in patients with acute vestibular neuronitis.

Get it checked: If your dizziness is brought on by a certain movement (turning in bed), then it may be bppv and the epley may be indicated. Bppv is usually short lived... 6 weeks to several months. If your dizziness is chronic... It should be checked and i would avoid using vestibular suppressants, they will hinder your body's recovery. See your local ENT if you have had this a while.
