 4  PSVT, orthostatic hypotension, POTS None, as far as I can tell. I have several chronic conditions, so any potential side effects could have been explained away by me as part of these issues. This medication changed my life for the better. I was SO sick due to my autonomic dysfunction and all that it entailed. I felt like I got my life back. F 34 3 months

VISKEN  (PINDOLOL):  This medication is used alone or with other medications to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems. Pindolol belongs to a class of medications called beta-blockers. It works by blocking the effects of certain natural substances (such as epinephrine) on the heart and blood vessels. This results in a lowering of the heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
