I can't quench my thirst!

I was wondering if any one experiences this and if it is POTS related. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I was recently put on Florinef and my POTS symptons seem to be pretty much under control. I even started exercising! I'm just having this thirst problem!
PS: Plus I have to use the bathroom like every 10 minutes which is really inconveinent!

I can tell you that this symptom can improve...I still drink a lot of water, but I no longer have that unquenchable thirst.
In retrospect, I now wonder if desmopressin may have helped this symptom. Hopefully the florinef will help you to retain water and be less thirsty. One thing I found that did help me was drinking pedialyte.
My heart goes out to you. I know this is a miserable symptom.

One thing I wonder is whether water is the best thing to drink? I mean, salt goes where water goes so if we take in a lot of water won't it flush out the sodium and it seems we need more salt to retain the water right? Just curious...I drink soda myself which I know isn't healthy but it does have sodium so I figure it helps.
