Can Midodrine Cause A Stroke
Potentially: This stuff is used to raise blood pressure, especially in folks with orthostatic hypotension (BP drops when they stand up) overdosing can cause severe elevation of BP and severe drop in heart rate. Those things can cause significant difficulties. It can also cause erythema multiforme, which can also be deadly. So if you have a stroke, or heart block, or deadly skin reaction...That sound awful.
No: Midorine is a medication used to treat symptomatic low blood pressure which may be causing faintness. If any thing it will restore the appropriate amount of blood to brain and all other organs.
How can a drug like midodrine that constricts SOME vessels and not all of them, can cause higher pressure on ALL vessels walls??

No evidence seen: Mididrine is an alpha1-agonist and exerts its actions via activation of the alpha-adrenergic receptors of the arteriolar and venous vasculature, producing an increase in vascular tone and elevation of blood pressure. There is some recent evidence in animal coronaries there are Alpha and beta receptors in large coronaries and beta in small coronaries, but no data avialabe for midodrine.See 1 more doctor answer

My Dr lower midodrine cause my BP is running on the high side now my BP running a bit low heart rate is 120 at rest and when I stand it's 140 any idea
Depends: Dosage usually three times a day. Start at 2.5 mg three times a day and can titrate up to 10 mg three times. Want to stabilize blood pressure without making the pressure too high. So titrate to BP and symtoms. I usually titrate to the lowest dose that resolves symptoms.
