Dizziness is a well-known side effect of a wide range of drugs. However, the side effects reported in the summary of product characteristics are not exclusively based on placebo-controlled trials. Based on a systematic review of the literature including randomised placebo-controlled clinical trials, antihypertensive combination drugs, methylphenidate, high doses of tramadol and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors were associated with an increased risk of dizziness. Antihypertensive monotherapy and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors were generally not associated with an increased risk of dizziness when compared with placebo.
