In brief: It should help

There is a long list of therapies and medications used in pots, partly because no single approach has been found to work in all patients, but one important component of treatment is regular exercise to improve cardiovascular conditioning.
That, combined with increased fluid and salt intake, as well as medications as determined by your md will be your best bet to improve your symptoms.
