How do medications treat Meniere's disease?

Medicines cannot cure Meniere's disease, but they may relieve the symptoms. Diuretics may be used to lower the amount of fluid in your ears. Allergy medicine may also help, if allergies are a trigger for the disease.

Valium and other motion sickness treatments may ease vertigo, dizziness, and nausea, and anti-nausea drugs may also be useful. Injections of steroids or the antibiotic gentamicin into your middle ear may also relieve vertigo, although hearing loss can be a side effect.
