Vertigo medication


My mom was recently diagnosed with positional vertigo. The ENT specialist prescribed Serc24 tablets. She has been taking the tablets twice a day, one in the morning and one at night. We went to another specialist who advised that she should stop taking the tablets and do certain head manoeuvres instead. should she stop taking the tablets or can we reduce the dosage to one tablet a day?

Thank you
