can't believe there is a website on vasovagal, I have been diagnosed with this condition after taking diet pills, heart doc said that I probably had it but the episode worsened, everyone thought I had anxiety, but I knew better, the heart doc says it is mistaken for anxiety, I think my anxiety came after, I have not fainted as of yet, I do get dizzy, lightheaded, sweat, and have to lay down when these symptoms come on, I am on meds, an SSRI, there have been studies that SSRI's have helped this condition, I am also on a beta blocker, these meds have helped lessen the condition although I do get symptoms, it is comforting to read emails on this site to know that I am not alone, thank you
