Hope this helps! The Midodrine increases the BP too much, and causes rapid pulse and several other problems.

I’ve had low BP for some time now, I am also having problems with dizziness and syncope! I have to cut way down on the midodrine.

My husband takes three of each per day. His blood pressure is still very very low. Doctor wants him to take salt pills. Just started it yesterday. Low blood pressure issue has been the biggest issue for PD for us. Anyone have any other suggestions
