What are the treatment options for vestibular neuronitis?

Generally, vestibular neuronitis clears up on its own. For this reason, doctors generally treat only the symptoms of the disorder. Antihistamines, antimetics, and benzoiazepines are medications given to treat these symptoms. A corticosteroid may be given to relieve inflammation that causes the dizziness. In addition, one of the symptoms of vestibular neuronitis is vomiting; doctors need to treat people who vomit often with IV liquids to prevent dehydration. To prevent lasting effects from vestibular neuronitis, physical therapists may treat individuals who suffer from the disorder with vestibular rehabilitation, or therapeutic exercises.
