I am 16 and have been taking fludrocortisone for 1 year. I was diagnosed with vasa vagal syncope. The fainting started out of the blue when I was 13 and I still have the occasional faint even in the fludrocortisone. I also take lisinopril for high blood pressure. I have a implantable loop recorder which monitors my heart activity when I have collapsed and I had this under general anaesthetic and the next day after the anaesthetic I fainted again and the recorder showed my heart stopping for a few seconds. This is when I started fludrocortisone the doctor said it might have stopped because of the general anaesthetic but can't be sure I am on 100 micrograms daily. I was wondering if anyone has experiance with this condition? Or knows if I have to take this fludrocortisone for the rest of my life ? Any advice or experiance will be really appreciated. Thankyou
