  • Can Blood pressure medicines cause forgetfulness?

    Not likely, unless you are being given a high dose of Clonidine or a Beta-blocker, or if your blood pressure is being lowered excessively. READ MORE

  • What is the possible treatment for vertigo?

    First of all, some attempt should be made to ascertain the cause of the vertigo and to determine whether it is of central or peripheral nervous system origin (brain vs. inner ear). If it is of peripheral origin, performing some positional exercises as well as the use of medications (3g Meclizine or Transderm Scopolamine patches) may be helpful. If of central nervous system origin, further workup to include brain neuroimaging studies would be needed, and the problem may be lessened by medications, but will not respond to positional exercises. More definitive treatment for the C.N.S. problem may also be needed. The patient should have a consultation with a neurologist for initial diagnosis and treatment. READ MORE
