Since I do not know the details of your medical history, I really cannot offer you much insight. Balancing your medications is something your doctor must do. While I know you are reluctant to make any changes, this discussion must be with him....I cannot treat you. I am sorry.
Menieres is very difficult to treat, let alone in a patient with bipolar disorder, so sometimes you just have to trust your doctor and follow those recommendation. Tinnitus is annoying, but it will not harm you. The dizzy spells and nausea can be managed by other medications, but Menieres is so unpredictable and must be individually treated.
