Hello Andy, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Dizziness can be caused by many causes. Dizziness itself can be described as the feeling of the body or head spinning, the head feels light, the feeling of fainting, darkening, etc. The description of dizziness itself is also important to determine the cause of dizziness. The following are some conditions that can cause dizziness:
blood pressure that is too low heart rhythm disorders heart valve disorders anemia excessive blood loss in a short period of time dehydration hypoglycemia or low blood sugar disorders in the ears motion sickness side effects of certain medications eye disorders neurological disorders and many other causes To be able to find out whether dizziness experienced by your neenk is caused by drugs or other things, of course, need to know clearly in advance what drugs are consumed by your grandmother. If indeed your grandmother feels dizzy after taking medication from the hospital, it helps you immediately bring your grandmother to control back to the doctor who prescribed medication so that you can re-evaluate the drugs given whether it really causes dizziness or dizziness caused by other things. It is better not to stop treatment, increase, or reduce the dose of the drug without consulting a doctor first.
Some things to do now:
Let your grandmother rest more and make sure your grandmother sleeps enough every day Give enough drink every day (if there are no specific restrictions from the treating doctor, give at least 2-3 liters to drink every day) Have your grandmother wake up from sleep or stand up from a position sit down more slowly, provide a place to hold on to your grandmother Give nutritious food every day Provide a handle in the bathroom and make sure the bathroom floor is not slippery Encourage your grandmother to keep on physical activity as much as possible, but still accompany your grandmother in activities
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
