Scopolamine may be effective in reducing the high vagal tone that occurs during syncopal episodes (Raviele, Themistoclakis & Gasparini, 1996, p. 115).

What does that mean?? I found it on the DINET page and my neuro was going to put me on scopolamine patch and I am just wondering what that info above means...? THanks :)

Below is a link to the article Phamacology of the Autonomic Nervous System from the Vanderbilt website - I use this to learn about some of the medications prescribed but I do find parts difficult to understand. Page 22 explains Muscarinic Antagonists and their use (I learned something new about Tomatoes - scary). Hope this helps.
