A doctor may prescribe anti-sickness medication if you are troubled with being sick (vomiting). Some medicines also help to quieten the nerve messages from the inner ear and may ease vertigo - for example, prochlorperazine . If you need to take medication, only take it for a few days. Taking medication for longer seems to stop the body from recovering from the vertigo as quickly as it would if you don't take the medication. It is also important to get up and about as soon as you can, even if it makes you dizzy. This is for the same reason.
It usually takes three weeks to recover from vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis. Recovery happens due to a combination of the body fighting off the infection, and the brain getting used to the vestibular imbalance (compensation). Some persons experience persistent vertigo or discomfort on head motion even after three weeks have gone by. After two to three months, testing (that is,an ENG , audiogram and others) is indicated to be certain that this is indeed the correct diagnosis. A vestibular rehabilitation program, may help speed full recovery via compensation.
