This note is to Kim. I was diganosed with vasodepressorsyncope 4 years ago. My cardiologist prescribed me a medicine called Norpace. It is to raise your blood pressure and I didn't have any side effects to it at all. Maybe you could ask your doctor. I was on the highest dose of this medicine that could possibly be prescribed. I am 20 years old now and I only have an episode when ever I am in a stressful situation. It helps to get a paper bag when you feel a fainting spell come on, and breath in that bag. You get the proper amount of carbondioxide that you need.
