In brief: See below

Treatment of pots (postural tachycardia syndrome) can be challenging.
Some patients improve with Fludrocortisone which retain fluid and prevent the drop in blood pressure that causes lightheadedness. Drinking plenty of fluids is usually helpful. There are other drug therapies than can be tried if symptoms persist often a therapeutic trial is necessary to find what works best in an individual.
