Treatment of Menieres
« on: Aug 25 2003, 07:50 PM »
I hope I am not posting this twice, as I have already typed it once and then it disappeared

I have had Menieres approx 20 years but recently it has become bilateral and with a flare up of spinning attacks.  I have recently moved and have a new Dr. and can see problems looming re the use of librium to help control the Menieres and help me cope .  Two ear specialists have advocated the use of librium but I find that GPs are becoming very anti librium.  I can understand this but I use it with care and often go weeks without using it, but when feeling a spinning attack coming on if I have time to take my serc and one 5mg librium I find the attacks are much less severe, my specialist says this makes sense as the librium relaxes the nervous system.

Does anyone have any experience of using librium and the attitude of their specialist or GP :o

Hi Penny,
I don't think I can help you but I did find this when I did a search:

It may give you some answers.

I too have had 20 years and have it bilateral.  :(  I know how you feel.

Whenever I hear the term, 'let's go for a spin', it makes me cringe.
