driving with vaso vagal

From: Unlicensed


I have vaso vagal - both the cardioinhibitor version and the vaso depressor version (I think thats right). I have a pacemaker which sorts out the first but I still perform poorly on the tilt table(only lasted 3 minutes). The DVLA have currently withdrawn my driving licence and want to know about treatment. Are drugs actually useful in helping the vaso depressor problem and are there any problem side effects. My consultant wants me to try some but I'm not so sure - its a commitment for life!
