Re: vaso vagal response



Well, I guess it's up to you. I know how you feel as do others on the forum. Cheers to you for not letting it keep you locked up in your house afraid to go out. I'm 25 and just got put on Toprol about a month ago. It's a beta blocker. For about a week it made me yawn a lot, but now it doesn't bother me at all. You can read about my symptoms a couple posts above, I think I called it Symptoms Summary. Since I have been on this medicine I haven't actually passed out, but I have had 2 or 3 times feeling like I was going to. Since anxiety can cause episodes, I'm also trying more Zoloft. I don't like to be on so medicine being young either. I feel like I should be "in my prime", but apparantly God has some other lesson he wants to teach me right now and to tell you the truth I'm thankful for whatever it is. Don't worry about being young and on medicine. It may not be for the rest of your life. It could just be for a few years or so. And what do you have to lose? If you try it and it doesn't work, you're in no worse shape than you are now and you can quit taking it. But, my advice is this: don't expect immediate results. Medicines like that take awhile to get into your system and expecting a quick fix is a good way to get dissappointed and even depressed. I would tell the doc I want to try it for awhile, but it's up to you. Hang in there. I'll be praying for you too as I do everyone else on this board who has this frustrating "problem". :)
