A 20-year-old male asked:

Are beta blockers and adequate hydration the best management of mild marfan syndrome (no aortic dilation noted) and hyperadrenergic (raise in blood pressure upon standing) pots?

Cardiologist: I believe that a cardiologist with special interest in Marfan's syndrome is best qualified to answer your question. I do believe that beta blockers as well as salt tablets or florinef could be.effective in preventing the tachycardia provoked by standing in patients with POTS. Again, a cardiologist could advise you best.
