Trepiline may indeed cause dizziness and postural hypotension - a sudden drop in blood pressure when you get up up too quickly from a sitting or standing position. This is usually transient and is resolved within a couple of weeks of treatment. If it gets worse or does not improve at all after a few weeks you'll have to consult your prescriber regarding its use
