i’m about to start midodrine because my beta blockers have been lowering my blood pressure. any symptoms and/or experiences you guys have had with this medication? kinda nervous as i’ve never tried bp meds before.

      The first time I took Midodrine, I had some very uncomfortable shivers and scalp tingling and goosebumps and it freaked me out a bit, but after the first couple days, those side effects stopped completely. I've been on it for a couple years, and it isn't a cure, but for me personally, it's reduced the frequency of my fainting. I hope it's helpful for you!

      honestly i didn’t notice any differences other than i got really bad goosebumps and the chills like every 30 seconds. it was so bad that i went off of it bc i was really uncomfortable. but it didn’t help me that much so it was fine to stop :) good luck!

      I'm on it. I found it very helpful at the beginning but it stops working over time when I take it daily unfortunately. It's the only med that's helped that much with my symptoms. Wish there were others like it

      I’m on 5mg twice a day. Haven’t had a negative experience but haven’t noticed any changes in how I’m feeling. I might be having a dose change soon.
