No good answer: I am uncertain either of these will help. How exacting was your evaluation. These are important problems and they need clarification. There is no good therapy but part of the treatment depends on why you have these diagnoses.

Prescribed?: Did a physician prescribe these medications for you? These certainly would not be the usual and customary medications for either an autonomic nor a peripheral neuropathy. Suggest strongly that you see a neurologist to assist in a diagnostic and treatment plan.
