Re: syncope



I have heard that the side effects of Beta Blockers are worst than the vaso vagal condition. A very knowledgable Electrocardiologist advised me of this several years ago and I have seen numerous others on this forum express the same feelings. In effect, unless you truly see a positive difference when taking Beta Blockers, it's best not to take them.

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.
