Reviews for Betaskerque:
"At a certain age, many people experience problems with headaches, accompanied by headaches, dizziness, and tinnitus. It happened with me. Long did not wait, turned to the neurologist for help. The doctor prescribed me some medications, including Betasker. After regular intake( I drank the tablets at a maximum dose of 24 mg 2 times a day) dizziness was gone, but the noise in the ears remained. I did not find any side effects. Of the minuses of this drug, I can only note the price. Unfortunately, I can not afford to buy such expensive drugs on an ongoing basis. "
" 3 years ago my father suffered a stroke of the brain. Fortunately, it has not had any serious consequences in the form of paralysis and loss of speech. But only just every day suffers from dizziness. There are so strong ones that can not get out of bed. A district therapist wrote to him to take betaserk tablets 1 or 3 times a day. Said that it should be done for life. It's been 3 months since the start of treatment. Father feels good, dizziness happens, but not so intense. Now he even goes to the store and has a playground with grandchildren. "
