Hi

Thank you for your post. My advice would be to go back to your doctor and explain the betahistine was helpful but having stopped it you are still symptomatic. I would then ask if you could have betahistine for longer and if not, what are the other options.

What type of ataxia do you have?

Best wishes

I take Betahistine. It takes a while to settle. I also get a touch of 'morning sickness' but with a few crackers and butter it seems to stop the nausea. Try it... Jean

I was given betahistine and ended up taking bio concept ginger capsule twice a day for the nausea it worked I came off the betahistine as incorrect diagnosis I felt a lot better for not taking them as I was getting a lot of head pressure
