OBJECTIVE:

To analyze the prevalence, methods of diagnosis and treatment of psychogenic dizziness in patients with arterial hypertension and evaluate the efficacy of treatment with noophen and betahistin.

The prevalence of psychogenic dizziness in patients with arterial hypertension was 47%. Noophen in dose 500 mg/day significantly (p<0.001) reduced the severity of dizziness, anxiety, asthenia, and headache compared to baseline and to the efficacy of betahistin as well.
