I forgot to mention that I am on medication. I take 200mg carbamazapine for the fits (very low dose seemingly) and 120 mg twice daily sotalol for my heart rythm disorders. Are these compatable with VV? I worry that the beta blocker may slow the heart down to much when my blood pressure drops too low. I have always had a low blood pressure. Should I take something to thin the blood?.
