I was diagnosed with vasovagal syncope and given a PM after a 5 second pause on the tilt table test.
My EP states that the LOTREL high blood pressure medicine I was taking made the probablity of syncope episodes more likely due to the dialation of blood vessels.
Well I did and still due have high blood pressure. He has me on 20mg of coreg (beta blocker) and 240mg of Verapamil (calcium
He said that if these did not work to lower my pressure he'd add Clonidine (Alpha Blocker)
Current blood pressure avg 145/95, Had Pacemaker for 7 weeks!
