I am so relieved that I found this discussion. Last week I had my first episode. It was quite scary more so for my husband than myself. I went to the hospital because I wanted to find out exactly what had happened. The first MD I saw told me that it was vaso vagal and said that it would probably not happen again. However, from what I have read it is likely that it may happen again. I am curious as to whether anyone has information or personally experienced perscription drugs inducing an episode. I would appreciate any information on the subject. My husband is soo afraid that this may happen when I am alone and that I may fall and hurt myself.
