Beta blockers such as Toprolol, metoprolol, And a more powerful drug as Norpace.... Also in the B/P drugs and fluid drugs are florinef, Midodrine, also used are Zoloft , prozac ect..... these are used because they have been found to be beificial to prevent blood pooling in the extremities.....also salt tablets are used........
