Hi Layne, can you explain the symptoms of your husbands attacks. This would really help. Also, was your husbands blood pressure med. a beta blocker? Sometimes beta blockers can lower either your BP or HR too much, causing a person to faint. Need more information, and then, maybe, can give you some questions to ask. One thing, try not to mention driving when talking to the doctor. They are obligated in some states by law to tell you not to drive. Sounds like your husband needs to know what caused the episode. Write back

take care
