In brief: With difficulty
This is often difficult to treat successfully.
First, you need a tilt table test to confirm the diagnosis. If confirmed, volume expansion by eating a high salt diet and drinking plenty of fluids may help. Beta blockers, Fludrocortisone (florinef) and midodrine (proamatine) are used with variable success. Good luck.

In brief: Multiple treatments
Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (pots) is a disorder of the autonomic ( think automatic ) nervous system where the heart rate rises dramatically with standing.
There are many associated symptoms with a wide spectrum of severity. For mild cases, simple dietary adjustments are helpful, but most require medical treatment. You should see a physician who specializes in the treatment of pots.
