The drug you are referring to is a trademark drug with the active ingredient betahistine. Where this drug is usually used to help reduce spinning dizzy conditions due to vertigo. This drug is included in the class of antihitsmain H3 which is useful for overcoming or alleviating symptoms of impaired organ balance that generally occurs in vertigo.
Each drug has different side effects and interactions. Including this drug, betahistine should be consumed in accordance with doctor's recommendations. Did you explain before taking this medicine to your doctor that you have a history of asthma? This drug may trigger shortness in some people with asthma. Therefore, before you take betahistine, tell your doctor that you have asthma riwayata.
In addition, if you are taking asthma medication, then this betahistini has interactions including reducing the effectiveness of asthma beta 2 agonist drugs, such as salbutamol and osmeterol.
In addition, here are some side reflexes that may arise after consuming betahistine, for example
