Which, If Any, Med Might Cool Me Down?

Being hot is actually worse than being lightheaded!! At least being lightheaded, I can sit somewhere. Being hot makes me MORE lightheaded and chained to the house with its air-conditioning.

I am not on any meds for POTS. The ONLY med that I tried and felt cool with was an alpha/beta blocker(forgot the name), but my standing b/p was 70/40 on it. Needless to say, I can't function with that low of a blood pressure. BUT, I remember I was cool all day!! That was the only plus.

Do y'all notice any of those meds seem to make you cooler?

BTW, everytime I check my axillary temperature, it reads 96.5, which converts to 97.5 normal temp. So, I am not hot because of being hyperthyroid or anything like that. I tend to have a low temperature.

I suspect that Florinef has helped cool me down a bit although I can't say this conclusively because I only started taking it in autumn (March) and it's now going into winter here.

This winter I seem to be coping a bit better with warm indoor environments. Last winter when I wasn't taking Florinef I was not tolerating warm indoor environments as well.

I have read elsewhere on this site that some people feel cooler on midodrine and mestinon. One person said they felt quite cold while taking midodrine.

mestinon has been of great help for me because it kept me warm (i'm a cold potsie :lol: ). not sure if it would help the other way around. good luck in finding answers so that you'll be more comfortable during summer.

take care,

corina :)
