Discussion in 'Problems Standing: Orthostatic Intolerance; POTS' started by Mollymolly, Oct 26, 2017.
I may have POTS but don't know how to deal with it ,any suggestion will be appreciated?
Have you been diagnosed, gone to a doctor, any test result?
There are many info about pots you can find.
Treatment usually beta blocker, electrolyte, fluid.
Things to increase blood volume.
I take Atenolol and Midodrine for POTS and can share more about this later if it would be helpful.
I don't take any medications for POTS (as mine seems to be rather sporadic) but I salt every glass of water I drink and try to drink 2-3 liters a day. This isn't a cure-all for me but it helps greatly.
Ivabradine 1.25mg twice daily. Very effective.
Ivabradine here, 2.5mg twice daily, with a third dose on occasion if I've been busy and feel symptomatic. Works way better for me than beta-blocker.
I've also noticed quite an improvement from taking Cetirizine, 10mg twice daily. My POTS is strongly hyperadrenergic with suspicion of Mast Cell Activation playing a part, so it makes sense.
Circadin also seems to help with the sleep disruption that POTS can cause too.
Thank you all very helpfull
