Sertraline=Zoloft= SSRI

The SSRIs have been of help to some patients. Interestingly, all the SSRIs and SNRIs (example Cyambalta), have tachycardia listed as a possible side effect. Some POTS and IST patients find improvement on these medications, so the only way to know for sure is to try and watch for improvement or worsening of symptoms. I believe they are hypothesized to work by re-equilabrating the autonomic nervous system. I don't think the researchers are absolutely sure why they work in some patients.
