Objective: This article describes the current clinical treatment approaches for MD. Study design: Acute and chronic current pharmacological treatments in Ménière's disease (MD) are reviewed. Results: All treatments for MD are focused on treating the symptoms and are prophylactic to prevent further attacks. Medical management includes sodium restriction and the avoidance of caffeine, alcohol and nicotine. An evidence base for the management of patients with MD is still lacking. Conclusion: The…

Bridging the gap between chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency and Ménière disease
This review is an attempt to approach MD into the context of the more recent findings about the global brain waste clearance system, to which inner ear is anatomically and functionally connected, in order to build a reasonable model of MD pathogenesis.

Clinically, the earlier acute vertiginous attacks in Menière's disease and the later deafness appear to constitute a continuum. It is therefore possible that effective treatment of the cause of the
Menière's disease and hydrochlorothiazide (Dichlotride)--a critical analysis of symptoms and therapeutic effects.
In 50 cases of Meniere's disease, a diuretic, Dichlotride® (hydrochlorothiazide), was administered orally with the object of reducing the electrolyte disturbance and endolymphatic hydrops that can be
Diuretic and diet effect on Menière's disease Evaluated by the 1985 Committee on Hearing and Equilibrium Guidelines
The results of this preliminary study suggest that diuretics and a low-salt diet may decrease the natural progression of sensorineural hearing loss in patients with Menière's disease.
Use of a diuretic (Dyazide) in the treatment of Menière's disease. A double-blind cross-over placebo-controlled study.
Dyazide was found to have no significant effect on hearing or tinnitus, however, the vestibular complaints decreased significantly during the Dyazide treatment.

Thirty-six of the 66 patients with Meniere's disease were found to have significantly raised circulating immune complex levels compared with one (2.9%) of the 36 controls, and a statistically significant increased incidence of autoantibodies was also found in the meniere's group.
