How Does Betahistine (Vertihist 24) 24 mg Work?
Betahistine is a histamine analogue known to act as both partial histamine H1-receptor agonist and histamine H3-receptor antagonist in nerve tissue. Stimulating the H1-receptors causes a vasodilatory effect and increased permeability in the blood vessels, which results in reduced endolymphatic pressure. H3-receptor antagonism increases the levels of neurotransmitters in the brainstem, which blocks the activity of vestibular nuclei, helping to restore proper balance and reduced vertigo symptoms.
Betahistine is used to treat the following conditions:
