Dizzy Dame Posted August 11, 2006 Report Share Posted August 11, 2006 Hi all,I just thought I'd post something positive. I started mestinon yesterday and today began taking it in conjunction with my midodrine. I just did an orthostatic series and look at those beautiful numbers:Supine: 72 bpmSitting: 78 bpm Standing: 1 min- 103 bpm5 min- 105 bpm10 min- 108 bpmI know these aren't the most beautiful numbers in the world, but compared to my normal standing HR of 130-150 bpm after 10 minutes of standing a ~30 bpm drop is really, really encouraging. Plus the nausea and dizziness when I stand has been lessened. I still feel woozy when I stand, but nothing like normal. I'm going to be increasing my dose of midodrine and mestinon in 1 week from 5mg midodrine and 30 mg mestinon, to 7.5mg midodrine and 60 mg mestinon. I'm hoping that little increase will be even better for my heart.Okay, thanks for listening. I just had to post because this is the best I've felt since getting sick...which has been a loooong time of feeling really, really poopy.
