Answer

Outpatient treatment usually continues after discharge.

Multiple oral medicines are available.

In most cases, the brain rapidly compensates and adjusts to the new vestibular deficit, or the inflammatory process resolves.

Evidence indicates many sedating medicines commonly used for this condition may slow recovery. Thus, medical treatment may reduce symptoms but prolong recovery.
