Pharmacologic treatment of dizziness is complex and generally not entirely satisfactory. Symptoms are caused most often by loss of function in the inner ear, which medications generally are unable to restore. Although there is a substantial armamentarium of drugs that can be used for symptomatic treatment, side effects usually are substantial. Clinicians must keep in mind patient comfort, long-term recovery, adverse effects, and interaction of medications with other treatment modalities, such as surgery and physical therapy.
