Answer

The impact of dizziness on activities of daily living at work and home should be addressed. Screening for primary or reactive anxiety and depression is important. A history of prescription medicines, over-the-counter medications, herbal medicines, and recreational drugs (including smoking and alcohol) can help to identify pharmacologically induced syndromes.
