Betaserk - side effects from the drug are minimal, since it has no toxic effects on the body. Its mechanism of action is associated with the activation of different receptors and inhibition of histamine - the active substance, which is always present in the human body.
Why betaserk few side effects?
Betaserk applied for violations of the organ of equilibrium m hearing that manifest themselves in the form of dizziness, inability to move in space, nausea and sometimes vomiting. It regulates the effects on the brain (including the organ of hearing and balance) of histamine - the active substance, which is involved in many physiological processes in the human body. At the same time the excess histamine threatens the development of allergic disorders - Histamine takes them a direct and very active part.
Betaserk incorporates a substance similar to histamine (betahistine) synthetic origin, which acts as histamine. Betaserk stimulates receptors in the cells that are responsible for interaction with the histamine (H1-receptors), which has a histamine-action on the blood vessels that carry blood to the brain, including the organ of hearing and balance. Improved circulation in the brain as a whole and in the inner ear helps to reduce the intensity and frequency of attacks of vertigo

and other violations, in violation of the developing balance and hearing.
Simultaneously betaserk blocks the action of histamine H3 receptor and thereby inhibits the activity center of balance, which is located in the medulla oblongata. It contributes to the rapid (in a matter of hours, maximum - nights) removal of dizziness and balance disorders. Simultaneously, remove and autonomic symptoms that accompany attacks of vertigo - nausea, vomiting, sweating and so on. But sometimes there is an improvement in just a few weeks after starting the drug, and a stable therapeutic effect - after several months of treatment. Application betaserk early in the disease process prevents the progression of the pathological process and persistent hearing loss in later stages.
Thus, the effect betaserk largely repeats the action of histamine, that is the physiological process. That is why it has no significant side effects.
