Re: Questions about Vaso-vagal

From: Tiffany (


I was recently diagnosed with Vaso-vagal by my cardiologist. He told me that Zoloft (yes, the antidepressant) is used to treat it. He prescribed 100 mg of Zoloft at bedtime. However, I have only been taking it for 3 days and the next likely time for me to have an "attack" is tomorrow. But I would definitely ask your doctor about Zoloft to treat vaso-vagal.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
