This is Dr. David

what do you mean by SIRC?

Ask Your Own Oncology Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It's a pill for inner ear issues
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

Serc tablets contain the active ingredient betahistine dihydrochloride. Serc works by improving the blood flow of the inner ear and restoring it to normal

is there an expiration date on the package or prescription?

sometimes medications can loose effectiveness after their expiration date.

if you keep the medication in a cool dark dry area, this can sometimes extend the life of medications.

if they are kept in a warm, moist, humid place, this can often shorten the life of medications.

let me know if you have other questions.

the expiry date on the medication is june 2012
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it's in the medicine cabinet
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

you can try it

most likely it is not dangerous

but it could be less effective.

many medicine cabinets are in the bathroom where there can be excessive humidity from the toilet and shower

so not the best place to store medications long term.

would it hurt to try serc thast I have in the medicine cabinet
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
would I need a ct scan for anything
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

most likely the serc will not hurt you, but could be less effective

why would you need a CT scan? are you having dizziness from inner ear?

I was yesterday. The room was spinning but not today
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

I see.

that is good the room is not spinning today.

anxiety can cause dizziness, dehydration can cause dizziness.

if you are not having symptoms today, then don't take the serc.

let me know if you have other questions.

The walk in clinic doctor said I had fluid in the Middle ear and he thought the spinning was from the inner ear
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

then medications like serc can help

or meclizine or antivert or dramamine can help the dizziness.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
can you get any of those over the counter
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

would a brain tumor cause dizziness
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

it wouldn't be on and off dizziness.

it would cause headaches and seizures as well

and your doctors have already looked in your ears and saw fluid.

so you don't have a brain tumor causing your dizziness symptoms.

Would a brain tumor cause the same symptoms
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

a brain tumor would cause constant dizziness, it wouldn't get better

and it would cause headaches and seizures as well

and your doctors have already looked in your ears and saw fluid which causes dizziness.

so you don't have a brain tumor.

When I get dizzy, I don't feel faint. Just spinning and stops
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago
