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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

He's right!: Gout is a side effect of too much uric acid in the blood, but it can cause renal stones, urate nephropathy, and is strongly associated with metabolic syndrome and heart disease, as an independent risk factor. Treating each episode of gout with nsaids is insane, unless you treat the cause. It will simply recur, ultimately causing permanent arthritis in joints, and hurt other organs too! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
