In brief: Depends on cause

Orthostatic hypotension (bp falls when standing up) can be caused by medications, dehydration, or problems with blood pressure regulation.
There are many strategies that can be used to alleviate the symptoms, including several types of medications. You should speak to a cardiologist about this.
