    Hi! I have a very important question for anybody that could kindly anserw it. I've been taking fludrocortisona for 3 months, and I noticed that I started getting terrible depressed without any external cause... I'll take a potassium test tomorrow, to see if it is related to it. Since the improvemment on my POTS was very moderated, I decided to stop taking this medication and try another one later. I'm afraid my doctor doesn't know how to securely stop taking it, Does anybody knows the right way to leave it? if its possible, could anybody provide me with any text about it? Thank you very much in advance!

    I tapered off of it and had a terrible time of it. Plan to go slow and if possible, go slower than that.
