Betahistine Hydrochloride is a drug resembling naturally occurring histamine in some of its effects and is used as a treatment for Meniere’s disease, a condition caused by the pressure of excess fluid in the inner ear.
Is Betahistine Hydrochloride A Cure For Meniere’s Disease? While Betahistine Hydrochloride is not a “cure” for Meniere’s, some of the research has verified that it can eliminate many of the symptoms associated with Meniere’s disease.
When taken regularly Betahistine Hydrochloride seems to reduce the frequency and severity of the attacks of nausea and vertigo that characterize this condition. It is thought to work by improving blood flow in the small blood vessels of the inner ear. Betahistine Hydrochloride as a treatment is not always successful and surgery is sometimes required.
Possible Side Effects
Betahistine Hydrochloride can have side effects. Reported adverse effects are minor. Occasionally patients have experienced gastric upset, nausea and headache
About Meniere's Disease
Meniere’s disease is characterized clinically by recurrent episodes of vertigo (the sensation of spinning or whirling) accompanied by tinnitus (ringing, roaring, or buzzing sound in the ears or head) and hearing loss. Nausea and vomiting may also occur. The vertigo lasts from a few minutes to several hours.
Some patients have mild or major dizzy spells in frequent clusters, possibly once or twice weekly, for a period of several weeks or months, and then have remission of episodes, which may last for months or years. Others may have vertiginous attacks only once or twice yearly. Virtually none have daily spells, and continuous vertigo in the sense of dizziness without remission for many days or weeks. In general, hearing is poorer and tinnitus loud when attacks are frequent.
Occasionally patients have experienced gastric upset, nausea and headache.
