In brief: Postural hypotension

Postural hypotension with reflex tachycardia is a poorly understood syndrome .
If all physical conditions have been ruled out multile therapies are suggested. Phenylepherine is mechanistically similar to other drugs like midi drone approved for this purpose and have less side effects . Phenylepherine constricts blood vessels and is available over the counter caution should be exercised.
