Two drugs I've tried are Prochlorperazine and Betahistine.  They didn't completely get rid of my vertigo but they made life a lot better.

Thanks Poppy7402.I tried Betahistine and made the symptoms worse.I tried it for 15 days and it was terrible for me.I felt my head like a balloon, and it was under the supervision of the neurologist.What about the other medicine you mentioned?What was the dosage of Prochlorperazine?

The dosage I was given was 5 mg (one tablet) three times a day.  

I really hope this helps you as vertigo is just so debilitating.

I had vertigo once from my MS, and it was so tough to deal with. I don't have any advice on how to fix it, but just wanted to tell you that I am so sorry you're going through it. It really is a horrible, horrible symptom.

Best,
Jane
