What are the treatment options for Meniere's disease?

Meniere's disease cannot be cured, but the symptoms can often be treated. Medications may be taken by mouth to relieve vertigo, dizziness, and nausea. In some cases, drugs may be injected into the ears, or ear surgery may be necessary to ease vertigo.

A hearing aid may help with hearing loss. Dietary changes may also help. Your doctor may recommend that you control your salt intake and cut out MSG, caffeine and nicotine entirely, as these may aggravate Meniere's disease.
