Dizziness A Johns Hopkins Press Health Book Dizziness Why You Feel Dizzy and What ­ Will Help You Feel Better GREGORY T. WHITMAN, MD and ROBERT W. BALOH, MD Johns Hopkins University Press ​ • ​Baltimore Note to the Reader: This book is not meant to substitute for medical care of peo­ ple with dizziness, and treatment should not be based solely on its contents. Instead, treatment must be developed in a dialogue between the individual and his or her physician. Our book has been written to help with that dialogue. Drug dosage: The authors and publisher have made reasonable efforts to determine that the se­ lection of drugs discussed in this text conform to the practices of the general medical community. The medi­ cations described do not necessarily have specific approval by the US Food and Drug Administration for use in the diseases for which they are recommended. In view of ongoing research, changes in governmental regulation, and the constant flow of information relating to drug therapy and drug reactions, the reader is urged to check the package insert of each drug for any change in indications and dosage and for warnings and pre­ cautions. This is particularly impor­ tant when the recommended agent is a new and/or infrequently used drug.© 2016 Johns Hopkins University Press All rights reserved.
