Symptomatically: In the early stages just anti nausea and anti dizzy medications. The acute effects usually go away after a few days.

Vestibular neuritis : Treatment during the acute vertigo stage with steroids has shown to improve acute phase symptoms but not long term symptoms. Anti nausea, anti histamine, and benzodiazepines can treat the symptoms. Alongside medicine therapy vestibular exercises hasten recovery. Hope this helps.
