In brief: Midodrine

Midodrine is a vasoconstrictor typically used for patients with difficult neurally-mediated syncope or significant orthostasis .
As such, it can drive the BP up higher. In someone with a volatile bp, such a drug could precipitate a very high BP that could increase ones risk for stroje.
