Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 months 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?

    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.
