Vertigo is a symptom of vestibular dysfunction and described as a sensation of motion, most commonly rotational motion

Most common causes of Vertigo are:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
  • Meniere's disease

In Vertigo

For better vestibular recovery1
In the frequency of Vertigo attacks2 & its intensity3
Facilitates the body’s natural compensation4
Only non sedating anti vertigo drug4

In BPPV, to manage Post Maneuver Dizziness

Decrease in the symptoms5
3x improvement in residual dizziness6
Reduced recurrence with sustained symptom relief5

In Meniere’s disease

1st line drug in Meniere’s disease8
Significantly improves clinical outcomes9
