After a few days spent on the observation floor, I was set and free to go home, as the symptoms I was having then were not happening. The syncope only occurred when I was standing and at very random times, like when I'd lift my hand(s) too high or got up to fast, or just plain no reason, I'd spill to the floor - HARD.

It wouldn't be long until I got a workup from my new primary doctor, that based on my history and diagnosis of autonomic dysfunction, that the medication I had a reaction to, likely caused an onset of POTS (Post Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome)2 - something I'd previously been diagnosed with years and years ago, but never needed to be medicated for.
