I was reading a monograph of vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid. You can read it here. Among the many symptoms caused by a mild deficiency, orthostatic hypotention was one of them. B5 is needed to make acetyl coa. Acetyl coa together with choline make acetylcholine (Ach). This is the main neurotransmitter in the autonomic nervous system. Low Ach levels lead to hypotonia, hypotension, weakness, etc. Mestinon works by increasing levels of Ach so you get the idea. B5 is found is most b complex supplements but in small doses but higher, therapeutic doses may work in this case. Other symptoms of low B5 can include dry eyes, hair falling out, weakness, adrenal fatigue, exercise intolerance, low muscle tone, etc. I used 1 gram this morning and I can feel an increase in muscle tone and concentration. I usually have problems with both. Anyone else try this ?
