Dizziness and Motion Sickness

Please keep in mind that meclizine and dramamine only treat the symptoms of dizziness without fixing the underying cause and in some cases, may even make dizziness worse (more info here)! You can try to figure out what is causing your dizziness in order to address the root cause by following this flowchart. Regarding the OTC patch, this is NOT the same as the prescription motion sickness patch (scopolamine). Vitamin D3 appears to help decrease risk of BPPV, a very common cause of transient vertigo that occurs with head movements (more info on the relationship between vitamin D levels and BPPV can be found here).

At the high end, top of the line hearing amplifiers can often cost around $2000, as much as bona fide hearing aids sold by an audiologist. These top of the line devices are categorized under "Amplifiers +" below. Regarding TV ears, sometimes you just want to hear the TV better without annoying others by increasing the volume.
