Two general classes of drugs are used to treat vertigo, nausea, and vomiting: vestibular suppressants and antiemetics.1 Vestibular suppressants treat a variety of symptoms associated with vestibular illness, usually reducing the sensation of vertigo and associated nausea and vomiting. Antiemetics are more selective in action; they are used primarily to reduce nausea and vomiting associated with many illnesses and can also be used in combination with vestibular suppressants for treating vertigo.
