Answer

Treatment of migraine-associated vestibulopathy is the same as that of migraine, focusing on adequate control of the frequency and intensity of symptoms using both abortive and prophylactic medications. Triggers should be minimized/eliminated, including disturbed sleep pattern, diet, and lifestyle. [13] Prophylactic and abortive medications commonly used in treating migraine should be individually tailored. In the authors’ experience, topiramate and rizatriptan benzoate are associated with long-term control of vestibular migraine.
