So I have POTS and I’m supposed to go on honeymoon in Florida in 5 weeks, and I’m curious about getting saline infusions before going.

I’m seeing my cardiologist on July 14, do you think she’d give me the saline infusion prescription?
How do I ask and dose anyone else here get them?

    I'm not quite sure what that prescription is but personally I take electrolyte capsules by saltstick. I just call them salt pills. I'm not taking them while I'm pregnant but I took them every day before and they were very helpful in helping me function.

    I think it's worth asking. I know a lot of fellow POTSIES use a drink mix called IV therapy.

    I get infusions for pots once a week. They’re very helpful! The only downside is they only last about 3 days or so
