What is Serc (Betahistine Hydrochloride) prescribed for?
Vertigo is a sense of the world spinning around you. Rotating and rocking are some of the other sensations one feels when they have vertigo. Dizziness, light headedness, balance disorders along with difficulties in walking to motion sickness are all symptoms as well.
However to understand vertigo, it is help to understand the anatomy of the ear. Sound waves travel through the outer ear canal until they reach the ear drum. From there, it turns into vibrations, which transmits in the middle ear, to the cochlea and finally to the vestinular, which carries the signal to your brain that interprets those nerve impulses as sound.
This medication is used to treat the vertigo in those that have Meniere’s disease, which is a disorder of the flow of the fluids of the inner ear. Symptoms often include ringing, ear fullness, hearing loss, and poor equilibrium. Meniere’s disease usually only effects one ear. This disease can occur at any age.
