Orthostatic hypotension due to suppression of vasomotor outflow after amphetamine intoxication.

Ten hours after ingestion of amphetamines, a previously healthy 17-year-old female adolescent experienced dizziness on standing.

Within 3 days, the baroreflex failure resolved spontaneously. To our knowledge, suppressed vasomotor outflow after ingestion of amphetamines has been previously observed only in animal studies.
