Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I take Prozac for depression, Atenolol Chlorthalidone for hypertension, and Valium as needed for stress. I also Vasovagal when stressed, which is becoming more frequent as I get older. Can I take a Valium in preparation for stressful situations, or does that exacerbate my tendency to Vasovagal under stress?
Deru on Jul, 9, 2014:
try Acupuncture or buy a Acupuncture machine which has pads to stimulate your nerves. Your sure to quit using antidepressants and be stable for the rest of your life but treatment should be done for about 6 months or more and may differ case to case.
From this study (1 month ago):
Still fighting the disease. Also having muscle twitches and heart flutters.
