I'm not sure what you are asking...are there 2 questions? I eat dinner either before or after my shot, it doesn't seem to make a difference. I do take zofran must nights of my shot because i have a tendancy to be nauseous.

I think in reference to your dizziness it is called Antivert? I have taken that before. My doc prescribed Klonopin for the MS dizziness. It does make me sleepy though. Be sure to ask a pharmacist they may know of a drug you can ask your doc about.

Unlike some medications, there isn't any "rule" about taking Avonex with or without meals.  Most folks who inject these drugs do it right before bed, so they can sleep through many of the side effects.  But you can do it most any time that's convenient for you, just so you do it at around the same time each day that you inject (like, always at night before bedtime; or always in the morning when you get up).
 
I can't help with the other drug as I don't suffer from dizziness and don't take anything for that.
