How do I prevent or reduce MdDS symptoms?

At present there are no treatments or therapies proven to be universally helpful to those suffering with MdDS. Some success in managing persistent symptoms has been realized with benzodiazepines, SNRIs, SSRIs and sometimes tricyclics. Vestibular rehabilitation therapy has shown effectiveness in a small number of patients, while a regular exercise program seems to help many.

Anticholinergic medications that work for typical forms of dizziness and motion sickness, such as meclizine or scopolamine, are not effective in either treatment or prevention of MdDS. Further research is required for a greater understanding of the disorder.

Investigative treatments are available but limited, usually requiring travel. To learn about treatments that sufferers have explored, you may wish to join one of our support groups.
