Babettegall Posted July 15, 2006 Report Share Posted July 15, 2006 Hi Friends,It's been a while since I've been online, and have been doing quite a bit of catching up on all the posts/new members. My GP recently put me on Toprol XL 25mg per day for my symptoms. This was after trying B-12 injections without any noticable improvements.I'm finding that the Beta-blocker seems to be making some nice improvements in the way I feel. I'm finding that I don't feel as "disconnected" as I used to feel, and not as dizzy either (thank goodness). I'm curious to know if any of you are also taking this particular Beta-blocker, and found that it will slowly but surely improve the cognitive impairments I've had since being dx'd with POTS? Is the dosage conservative (25mg per day?). Don't get me wrong, although I feel some physical improvements, it's not benefiting me cognitively. My energy level has also been improved, however, when I crash and burn (after doing dishes or a load of laundry - which is far more than I was able to do previously).... I feel it for the next two days (REALLY SYMPTOMATIC, despite the meds).I'm also having a heck of a time regulating my internal thermostat...... anyone else suffer with this?I'm also really curious about those of you who are getting the weekly IV fluids..... What symptoms warranted IV fluids over just increasing your oral intake? Any information you can share is greatly appreciated as I see my GP again in a week, and we are looking for alternative treatments to get my symptoms under control.Thanks for listening!!
