Over The Counter Medication For Vertigo
Is there any over-the-counter medications that I can take for dizziness and feeling faint. I've been feeling like this for months. I need relief?
See a doctor: You need to see a doctor. Without knowing exactly what is wrong with you it is impossible to know whether an over-the-counter medication would be helpful. Your symptoms are of some concern and I would suggest seeing a doctor as soon as possible.
I have had an vertigo and nausea for two and a half days. Do I need antibiotics. I have used over the counter drops for one and half days.?
Need more info.: One cannot decide on a treatment without determining the underlying cause of the symptoms. For example, if ones blood pressure falls below 90 mm systolic upon standing, the symptoms might be dur to dehydration, in which case one can prevent the symptoms by drinking more fluids. Other causes might require a more thorough physical exam.
Could I be having trouble with my hypothalamus? I have "terrible" burst of sweating and occasional dizziness. Is there any over-the-counter remedies?
Not likely.: Generally speaking the hypothalamus is not responsible for many symptoms. Dizziness and sweats would be much more likely to have another origin. There is no over the counter remedy to be recommended until we have a better picture of what might be wrong.
I woke up today so dizzy everytime I move my head or stand up, also felt some bad nausea. I am in the ER now, but is there any anti-dizziness medicine I can get over-the-counter to prevent it?
Complex Issue: I would like to know why you are getting dizzy before treating it. Many things can cause dizziness such as ear infections, baro-reflex dysautonomia, regular or vestibular migraines, disorders of your inner ear, anemia, dehydration, and ms (very rare). Please follow-up with your regular doctor if it recurs. Some people tolerate Meclizine well but the cause of your dizziness needs to be found.See 1 more doctor answer

Try Dramimine: Anti-histamines are often helpful.Get a more detailed answer ›
Antihistamines: Both non-sedating (Zyrtec, Allegra, (fexofenadine) Claritin) and sedating (Benadryl) over the counter antihistamines are useful for hives. Usually recommend daily treatment with non-sedating antihistamines for more chronic, persistent hives. For acute hives sedating antihistamines are fine.
Meds don't work: In general, you can't treat boils (abscesses) with medication. They have to be opened and drained.
There are but: If they actually work, you probably do not have a serious hemorrhoid problem.
Safety first: Depends what medication we are talking about. Since we don't know the long term effects of most drugs it's best to be cautious.
Meds, herbs and food: Anti-infammatory meds (nsaids) always taken with food to protect your stomach. Better yet get to reason for sciatica - trauma, posture, misalignment of body. Osteopathic physician who does manipulation or chiropractor may help. Physical therapy to strengthen you in better alignment. Anti-infl herbs include turmeric, ginger, rosemary & more. Find anti-infl diet online - try herbal zyflamend.See 2 more doctor answers
Not really: Most over the counter medications only temporarily improve hemorrhoids. Ice and sitz baths (soaking in warm water), as well as avoiding constipation by increasing fiber and fluid intake, work just as well for less money. Also try a moisturizing cleanser like balneol to decrease your irritation when wiping. Wipes and plain toilet paper can be really irritating.See 1 more doctor answer
Not over-the-counter: The medicine is by prescription, so a woman goes to her Ob-Gyn doctor (or a women's clinic) to be evaluated for it. Whether or not medicine can be used also depends on the age of the baby fetus (the number of weeks pregnant). The doctor will talk with the patient to be sure that the patient is making a good permanent decision, because abortion is a hard decision for any woman to make.
