How do I manage my labyrinthitis on a daily basis?

The first step to managing your labyrinthitis daily is to follow your doctor's instructions and take prescribed medication to treat your symptoms. Be careful when driving or using machinery, especially if you are experiencing vertigo. You may want to avoid those activities entirely if your symptoms are distracting.

You'll also want to try to move slowly and gradually when changing directions or standing up.
