What Is The Maximum Period Of Time Consuming 6 Mg Of Betahistine Mesylate?
Hello … Doctor … I am a woman aged 32 years. Nearly 2 months I have a headache and my head seems to be floating and someone is pushing. Sp.S. I was in central diigo vertigo … Until now I still consume bethahistine. And my pain is also accompanied by gastric acid (gerd). What I want to ask is it safe to consume bethahistine for a long time?
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Betahistine is a drug that is often given to treat vertigo, both due to Meniere's disease, inflammation of the inner ear, labyrinthitis, and BPPV. The performance of this drug is believed to dilate blood vessels and reduce the pressure that causes these symptoms. This drug is a prescription drug and should not be used without doctor's advice.
Regarding your question, so far various studies have shown that betahistin is safe to use in the long run and is even a referral therapy in certain cases. Therefore it does not matter if you use it, as long as you always control your doctor and make sure that you have taken it correctly.
In addition, support also with a good lifestyle, regular exercise, recognize triggers for vertigo such as lack of sleep, fatigue, eating coffee or salty foods, and adequate rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
