I've just begun a trial of Antivert which is an anti-vertigo drug that is taken as symptoms begin. Sounds good in theory right? The problem is that the "symptoms" are dizziness that feels like the room is spinning in one direction and my head is spinning in another direction.....not exactly the easiest time to open the damned pill bottle (or find it for that matter) and pour a glass of water! That's also assuming that water is readily available, which is tends not to be when the room that is spinning is part of a department store, etc., etc. Which brings me to my biggest complaint; why are any medications that either must be taken immediately upon symptoms or have anything to do with nausea in pill form?
My phenergan, another med for motion sickness that I take primarily for nausea symptoms, is a large chalky pill tasting so bitter that it makes me gag. Does anyone else find this a bit counter productive? Ahem, a nausea medication that makes you gag?
Hmmm.....perhaps we need a bit of antivert apply directly to the forhead, antivert apply directly to the forhead, antivert apply directly to the forhead.
