      I do. I think I need a higher dosage.

      I have but I also take flutocortizone with it. There has been small improvements with my Orthostatic hypotension, but ANS was brought into the picture which explains why the midrodrine and flutocortizone didn't do much for me 😅

        @Liaka I would also look into compression stockings or socks. Ask your doctor what grade you need and if you have insurance they can write a prescription for it. If not Amazon sells packs of 8 on there. This has helped a little especially with blood flow

      I started midodrine about a month ago and it has changed my life.

      I did but it did not help me. Salt helped a lot, strengthening my leg muscles, compression stockings and biofeedback

        @Angiebear35 What types of leg strengthening exercises did you do?

          @SJP you can Google it but I did all the basics to work out my legs, like squats, lunges, etc. There is a gradual program you can find where you can be laying down to start and then progress to upright leg workouts.

      It actually made my blood pressure even lower which was odd. I take Mestonin and it's been the only one to not lower my BP while helping stabilize my HR.
