In brief: Stop taking the meds
If the diagnosis was made by a primary care physician or urgent care and she is taking antivert/meclizine.
.. She should stop the medication which can prolong recovery. If she is continuing to have symptoms, she should see an ENT and get a "balance test" (eng) to confirm the diagnosis. She may also need an mri.
