how to prevent or treat orthostatic hypotension
See information from the FDA concerning the proposed withdrawal of midodrine from the U.S. market
The question often comes up about how to prevent or treat orthostatic hypotension...to avoid dizziness and falls.
It's often due to dehydration, diabetes, Parkinson's, or drugs.
Check for meds that may precipitate falls in BP such as alpha- blockers...diuretics...and many antiparkinson's drugs (levodopa, etc).
