A 24-year-old female asked:

If dramamine helps, does that mean lightheadedness (no spin) is related to vertigo? dramamine makes me feel better and 6 hours later i start to feel bad again. i take another one and an hour later i feel better again. its a cycle for days now.

Maybe/not: Dramamine is one of many antihistamines whose selective benefit to motion sickness sufferers is well known. Benefit from its use does not affirm any specific diagnosis. That would require a review of history, exam & specific clinical tests.
