How to Treat Fainting
Treatment will depend on the underlying condition that has caused fainting. For example:
- Abnormal heart rhythms can be treated with medications or by implanting a pacemaker.
- If a medication is causing syncope, it may need to be changed or discontinued.
- Anemia or other blood abnormalities should be treated.
If you are diagnosed as having fainted, follow your doctor's instructions.
