Vertigo: You may need more than antihistamine or you may need to increase your antihistamine dose. Other medical therapies helpfull for vertigo include use of steroid or a benzodiazepine especially at night. Epley maneuver may help https://youtu.be/hq-IQWSrAtM

"The" vertigo: Vertigo isn't a disease, it's a symptom of something else. Usually (but not always), the worse the vertigo & the more sudden the onset, the less likely it is to be something dangerous. Please repost & tell us what your gp said when you contacted him/her & told him/her you're worse: or, if you haven't gotten back in touch with your gp, please let us know why not.
