By: Sajjadi H.

Otolaryngol Clin North Am 2002 Jun;35(3):581-9, vii

Medical therapy of Meniere's disease is geared not only toward the differential diagnosis that has led to Meniere's disease and the supportive therapy for the physical manifestations of the disease but also for the psychologic sequelae of the disease such as mild-to-moderate situational depression and even chronic depression. Overall, with adequate medical therapy, allergy workup, and immunotherapy for patients with known diagnoses of allergies, the author's clinic has been able to help more than 85% of its patients who present with symptoms of Meniere's disease. For intractable cases where autoimmune phenomena can be suspected with a strong degree of suspicion, the author's clinic has also treated patients with immunosuppressive medications such as azathioprine and/or methotrexate in a low dose.
