Well, there actually have been medical studies that have used this class, the selective seratonin uptake inhibitors.

They have shown these drugs (through some action on the reflex arc which causes this fainting) - is surprisingly effective in treating this, showing a reduction of these episodes (18 vs 53 percent).

There are other drug therapies, which may not be as effective, and other treatments as well (including lifestyle changes all the way to pacemaker implantation).
