It becomes a vicious cycle when the bacterial flora present on the skin feed off of this. There are a few remedies for this, many can be OTC. Consult a specialist if you need for help. Feel better! ...Read more

I have hyperadrenergic pots and am in Xanax (alprazolam) withdrawal. Went to hospital with chest pain and they said everything looked okay. Vomiting, sweating, shaking, weak, cp, resting hr 90-100, ectopics. Safe?

Not safe...: Pots is without a proper algorithm of treatment but benzo use, especially xanax (alprazolam) can only be problematic, short and long term.
