vertigo attacks more frequent with falling

Two years ago, first major vertigo attack - ER, CAT scan, you're wonderful, take antivert and Valium. Next, thank you. One year ago, major attack - ER, CAT scan, you're wonderful, take antivert and Valium. Next, thank you. Four months aga, major attack... repeat. four other attacks in the preceding attacks, just to doctor's office, one referral to physical therapy who was able to see which side was more affected than other, give exercise, cleared it (no faster than drugs). Last attack three weeks ago, to doctor, couldn't determine side affected, back on drugs, basically told to live with it. Now I'm getting a good fall with each attack. I'm forcing a ENT appointment on this one - audiology appointment was perfect. Is there anything that will make this go away? it's coming more and more often. Ideas anyone?
