The patient was originally hospitalized on 04/26/07, secondary to dizziness and disequilibrium. Extensive workup during her first hospitalization was all negative, but a prominent feature was her very blunted affect and real anhedonia. She was transferred briefly to Psychiatry, however, on the second day in Psychiatry, she became very orthostatic and was transferred acutely back to the medicine. She briefly was on Cymbalta; however, this was discontinued when she was transferred back. She was monitored back medicine for 24 hours and was given intravenous fluids and these were discontinued. She was able to maintain her pressures then was able to ambulate without difficulty.
