V-V, Zoloft, salt, water and just lying down!

From: Debra



The Zoloft has helped me tremendously with VV, also using more salt and drinking more water. The few times I've felt an episode come on, I simply lay down and it goes away. Apparently one of the side effects of some anti-depressants is blood pressure regulation. This has certainly worked for me. I hope anyone out there still looking for answers will talk to their Docs about this type of therapy. I wish everyone good health...Debra
