      Hi everyone I'm new to the site and I am in need of advice. I'm flying for the first time in 25 years. I have menieres and I am terrified I'm going to have an episode of vertigo and the subsequent vomiting. Can anyone tell me how to deal with this and if there's anything I can do to avoid being ill?

      You could consider taking a dramamine an hour prior to flying. I have been dealing with vertigo the past few weeks, and have found that dramamine helps reduce the dizziness.

      It is all very new to me though, so perhaps there will be more helpful responses.

      Thank you I will invest in some. Thankfully I can get it in the UK. Betahistine is what I normally take but it's not very effective.

      I am not sure if it is marketed as Dramamine in the UK, but the medication name is Dimenhydrinate. Good luck and I hope your flight goes well with no sickness. It may be worth a call to your physician ahead of the flight.
