  2. Here is a list of potential and even conjectural therapies for POTS/OI. This list is in no way designed to be a tick off list or a suggestion that anyone should go out and treat themselves, more just something that my friend and I have compiled for reference and for doctor discussion. Pharms Florinef - promotes sodium retention, increases blood volume Midodrine - alpha 1 agonist (short lived) Dihydroergotamine - alpha 1 agonist Inderal - beta 1/2 receptor blocker Mestonin - peripheral acetylcholinesterase inhibitor Octreotide - stomach vasoconstrictor Epogen - Procrit - increases red blood cell generation and vasoconstriction SSRI (various) - increases serotonin, downregulate serotonin receptors, decrease sympathetic outflow, increase vasoconstriction SNRI - decrease sympathetic outflow Clonidine - alpha 2 agonist, antihypertensive Methyldopa - antihypertensive, reduces sympathetic outflow Labatalol - Combined alpha/beta blocker Xanax - gaba Klonopin - long acting gaba Losaratan - Angiotensin II receptor inhibitor (ARB) Benicar - Angiotensin II receptor inhibitor (ARB) Ivabradine - sinus node modulator, decreases tachycardia, no effect on BP Methylphenidate - stimulant, dopamine agonist? Modaphilin - central stimulant, unknown action Herbal Licorice root - blood volume increaser, hypertensive, reduces eNOS expression, ANG ii receptor agonist Butcher broom - vasoconstrictor (alpha 1 and alpha 2 and stimulates NE release) WARNING diuretic Valarian - Gaba and inverse adenosine antagonist Motherwort - cardiac tonic, reduces sympathetic outflow? Supplements Acetyl - L - cartinine - improves neuropathy, brain fog? Alpha Lipoic acid - improves neuropathy, brain fog? Vitamin B12 - energy, mitochondrial function, methylation cycle, antioxidant, nitric oxide scavenger Co Enzyme Q10 - energy, mitochondrial function. Other IV saline - 1 to 3 litres Exercise (graded) Experimental - Conjectural Low dose naltrexone - immuno modulator Huperzine A - acetylcholinesterase inhibitor Rehmannia glutinosa - acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, vasoconstrictor, NO Salvia elegens - Ace inhibitor and ANG II receptor antagonist Salvia miltiorrhiza - ANG II receptor antagonist Eucommia bark - beta blocker, vasodilator Scotch Broom - hypertensive, stimulates muscaranic acetylcholine receptors Lactuca virosa - acetylcholinesterase inhibitor Caulis sinomenii - Norepinephrine transporter activator, SSRI Tumeric - anti inflammatory, TNF alpha inhibitor, potential NO scavenger (iNOS)? Sceletium - SSRI Rhodiloa rosea - adaptogen, MAO inhibitor, acetylcholinesterase inhibitor Shizandra chinensis - adaptogen, acetylcholinesterase inhibitor Sallflower - Norepinephrine transporter activator Cat's Claw - adaptogen, immuno-modulator Cynomopium songaricum - potent Norepinephrine transporter activator Beetroot - potent source of NO hawthorn berry - increased NO-meditaed vasodilation, natural beta blocker Magnesium - among others, increases NO release Pilocarpus jaboradi - muscarnic acetylcholineste receptor agonist Puerararia lobata - increases blood flow to brain, NO mediated Horse Chestnut - venotonic, vasoconstrictor (aescin). Alchemilla vulgaris - venotinic Angelica siness - blood volume 'builder' - increases EPO production Galanthus nivalis - potent acetylcholinesterase inhbiitor California poppy - GABA binding agonist Astragalus - immuno modulator, blood volume 'builder'- increases EPO production. Gotu Kola - venotonic Camphor tree - 'circulatory stimulant' Kudzu vine - increases blood flow to brain, increased NO mediated vasodilation Calaba bean - potent acetylcholinesterase inhibitor Melilotus deuciemalis - decreased capillory permability, venotonic, vasoconstrictor Stinging nettle - increased NO-mediated dilation and flow. Kava kava - gaba agonist and SNRI activity maritime pine bark - NO precursor, antioxidant Choline - precursor of choline
