gdomaracki Posted January 10, 2010 Report Share Posted January 10, 2010 After going to see Dr. Gookin last week and having problems with lots of tachycardia especially when I'm trying to sleep, he decided that he wanted me to try Mestinon. So, yesterday morning I took 30mg and about 20 minutes after taking it I had what seemed to be an adrenic attack where I got all hot and clammy, racing heart, anxiety, shaking, weak and then at the end of it became extremely cold. Heres my question, I'm not sure if the medication made me feel this way or if it was just my POTS flaring up and I was wondering what effects anyone else has had on this medication. What are your experiences?? Of course now I am terrified to try this medication again but I know that if I don't I will never be sure. And I really need to start taking something to get my heart rate to come down, so I'm not always tachy and tired. Ugg, I just wish there was a more definate way to treat our symptoms rather than putting random harsh chemical compounds into our body and just waiting to see what kind of nasty effects it will have on us. :/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
