Treatment of dizziness is cause-specific and may involve surgery, repositioning manoeuvres, radiotherapy, medication, physio, exercise or dietary changes.

Medication can be directed at the cause, e.g. anti-viral or simply to sedate the dizzy centre until recovery recurs. Supportive medication e.g. anti-nausea, anticonvulsants and anti-inflammatory e.g. cortisone medications are also used.

Diuretics, antihistamines and even the insertion of grommets (with middle ear medication), increase exercise and low caffeine diet have been used for Meniere’s syndrome. Crystals (BPPV) are repositioned using a simple manoeuvre as medication does not help (This is well demonstrated in YouTube videos)
