. Do you know a prescription that doesn't have as many side effects? I was fine for a year then started a job and had 2 attacks. I recently quit because of the stress. I have no medical insurance, any ideas? I was diagnosed 3 years ago, then a year went by and nothing. Then another year another attack happened last year, only one. I started working a rather stressful position and had PVST the first month and again on the second month. I finally quit the position because of the increase in attacks. The doctor gave me Diltiazem which I didn't take while working (couldn't have worked because of side effects) and I took one pill and now it's making me really nauseated, headache, my pupils are small, and I'm really slow moving. Is there something I can take that won't affect my everyday life. Please help.
