Hyperpots Medication


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

For all the hyperpots patients out there who are taking an alpha blocker (clonidine, methyldopa, guanficine, etc.), how long have you been taking your medication? Also was there ever a time where your body stabilized after a period of time and therefore were able to wean off the medication? Are most hyperpots people on alpha blockers for life?

@bblassmith I have HPOTS but absolutely could not tolerate ANY alpha blockers. Clonidine was a horrible experience, and I tried guanfacine ( Tennex ) but it did not seem to do too much for me. I weaned off it slowly without any problems. I have found the best solution in Carvelidol ( beta and some alpha- blocking effects ) and Diltiazem ( Calcium channel blocker ).
