One of my husbands had fairly severe vertigo and piracetam helped a lot. I had ordered it, hoping it would help with severe, chronic migraine. Since migraine has something to do with swollen blood vessels at some point in the cycle, I thought my head was going to explode when I took it. Considering that, I thought it might help my husband, and it did. Vertigo can have to do with reduced blood flow to parts of the head, like the ears.

A quick way to research the drug is Wikipedia which is pretty accurate on drugs.

Thank you! My Dad suffers from vertigo, so as soon as I saw your post, I called him and encouraged him to talk to his doc about it. He goes Friday and he will do so. It breaks my heart to see him suffering with it. I don't know if he will be able to take it. He takes a ton of other stuff too, but thanks for the information.
