I am 42 yr. old female just diagnosed with POTS two weeks ago. Unable to take Metoprolol due to Raynaud's Syndrome I have a new electrical heart dr. he prescribed Cardizem which is good for POTS and Raynaud's I don't think the medicine agreed with me I was "medicine head" very tired 2 1/2 hours after taking it. All the next day a hangover effect and felt as If I had to think to breath. Anyone else have this problem with Cardizem? Any information on POTS would be appreciated. Sick and tired of being sick and tired. I also have sinus tachycardia but it is in my sinus node itself.
