I would like to know any side effects of Betahistamine. I have been on the drug for 11 years and have found it invaluable.

I was advised by my doctor to take Serc, a betahistamine drug before going thru audiometry. I'm just curious what the drug is for and why i need to take it before audiometry. also, is there any side effect? I went for a diagnostic consultation to figure out why am i getting dizzy and it's been my problem for as long as i can remember.

If you are suffering from Meniere's Disease which is a disorder of the inner ear, this can help relieve the symptoms.

Here's some info:

Since this med is not approved for regular use in the US, it is very hard to find much information on it.

It is given to people who have symptoms of vertigo, but the side effects are rapid weight loss if you take with every meal. Many dieticians or weight loss clinics rx this drug

I just started on betahistamine today. I have had Menieres disease since I was 26 years old. At that time they told me it was a disease that usually affected men between the ages of 25-40.....I was female age 26 :( I had a lot of problems with the vertigo initially.......then everything seem to settle down for a bit.....20 years later I wound up with a significant hearing loss....both ears......I wear hearing aids which have dramatically improved my quality of life. I am an ER nurse and although I can no longer do "hands on" nursing......I am helping to teach the next generation

I just started on Betahistamine today and I think it's already starting to help! The fullness and tinnitus has seemed to go down a little bit. I'm really hoping this is going to work for me~
