Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001432.Htm if your does not respond to Antivert (meclizine) it might be central rather than peripheral. My strong suggestion is to advise your doctor that Antivert (meclizine) did not work and see what he suggests, or consult a neurologist or an ear nose and throat specialist. Because there are potentially serious causes.
