No: My medical references show that Gabapentin and Baclofen are not used for the treatment of Postural Orthostatic Tackycardia Syndrome. For patient information on POTS just type in bit.ly/1F5vWEP in search box. No need for www or .com

No: Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is a complex health condition and the optimal therapy is uncertain. A good start point is to ensure adequate hydration and make sure the medications you are one are not causing your blood pressure to be low. Some patients have success with alpha agonists such as midodrine.

Not recommended: Both gabapentin and Baclofen would actually be potentially problematic, particularly in POTS. If these are needed, please consult your physician to ensure they are well aware of all the medications you are taking for overall treatment of all of your issues.
