Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that your pet Dutch has what appears to be vestibular symptoms. He also on anti-seizure medication (Phenobarbital).
Vestibular syndrome, which it sounds like a possibility here based on your description, is diagnosed however with a physical exam. The symptoms for this disease usually gradually improve over the course of several weeks.
So you won't really see improvement with the imbalance right away. The Dramamine does help with the nausea caused by the imbalance, but that is the only thing it is going to treat for.
Here is an article that talks more about Vestibular disease http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Content.plx?P=A&S=0&C=0&A=564
