I’m not sure if it’s one my medications or my anxiety but does anyone else get lightheaded or have a fast heart rate? I’m almost constantly light headed when I stand up and my heart is always racing 😩

      Have you ever looked into POTS? Often misdiagnosed as anxiety

      I was this way too. Worse after eating. Check your blood sugar when this happens if you can. Mine was too high, and once I cut out sugar it stopped.

      The lightheadedness by itself can be a side effect of the meds or a sign you're low on something in your diet. I've had it happen too. the heart race is definitely most likely a side effect of the medication

      I’d ask your doctor to test you for POTS. You can look it up too. ESP if you have tachycardia.
