Hi! I am very new to this and would love advice and encouragement. I am 31, mother of two. I have passed out 5 times and too many to count close calls. I am trying to eat and drink water regularly but I just seem to be getting episodes more often. My first one was in April. The doctor wants to put me on Metoprolol (toprol) I am a little leary of taking it because he said one of the side affects is that it drops you blood pressure. I can't do that because I already have low blood pressure. What should I do? Does it help any? Also, has anyone had a problam with driving? Today I almost passed out when I was driving and this is the second time it has happend. I thought that I wasn't suppose to happen when you drove. Thanks for any advice you have.
