In brief: Unlikely but possibl

When pts have the indication, midodrine can raise BP by increase vessel tone.
At night while lying down BP goes up due to increase return. Midodrine can further increase the BP if given too close to bed and in susceptible pts, can cause a spike in BP and cause a stroke.
