Are any of you on meds for pots? I’ve been between the ER and my bed for three days and all they’ve done is blood panels, two EKGS, and give me IV. Is there any meds to help pots episodes or am I truly SOL? I feel like sh*t.

Metoprolol

Fludrocortisone

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)

Atenolol

    I'm currently trying out metoprolol, a beta blocker (which lowers the heart rate). I also tried atenolol, another beta blocker, and if I cannot tolerate this medication, I'm going to go on fludrocortisone.

    I think it depends on the person and type of pots but I’ve found relief with metoprolol-beta blocker.
