Hi all. Seeing as search wasn't working when i typed in Midodrine (yet i know many posts have talked about this) just thought I'd ask. Wondering who's tried Midodrine for orthostatic intolerance, POTS & NMH? Mine is still pretty bad, i can barely stand for a few minutes, i get shaky, brain fog increases, heart rate goes way up etc within a minute or so. The only way i've found I can get past this is to seriously increase my HC (cortisone) doses, or wait until late at night, when it seems to be much better (after HC has gotten into my system for the day i suppose). Sometimes at night i can stand up / sit up and walk round the house for 30-60 minutes (mostly sitting, but at least up). During the day i go to the bathroom, kitchen to get something to eat / drink and by the time ive done that (5-7 minutes) im shaking again and quickly have to lay down where of course it all eases up. If i stand too long once i start shaking and try to 'push past it' ill often start heading toward a crash, heart rate will go way too fast and ill have to quickly lay down, drink alot of salt water and take MORE HC yet again to stop it. Ive been waiting ages for a referal that was sposed to go through to the heart institute at our local hospital (busy city one) that was sposed to be months ago. I rang and asked them and they still dont have the referal and have a stack of them waiting apparently.. so i may not get in for months! This is the only way I can get midodrine apparently as my current specialists dont have alot of exp with it and dont want to prescribe it until ive seen the heart centre for postural studies. This will kind of not go so well though possibly, beause to leave the house i have to really stress dose the HC, like 20mg over 1-1.5 hours (10,5,5) then about an hour after that kicks in, i can finally walk around and feel stable, even being up and about for 1/2hr or more my heart rate is still low and BP fine. Of course i cant do that all the time as it drastically increases my total HC dose for the day. Therefore I'm sick of waiting and found a reputable online pharmacy which i have purchased a pack of Midodrine from. Will apparently take a while to get here, and it was DAMN expensive, but i just can't wait to try it, even though it runs the risk of me not tolerating it which would be SUCH a $$ waste of an experiment! Fingers crossed. Any experiences with Midodrine would be appreciated, thanks. ~Chris.
