In brief: Not dangerous, but..

This can lead to significant distress and even disability.
It's important to remember there is nothing dangerous or life-threatening about this. However, if it happens often, it can cause significant anxiety, and avoidance of certain situations. If routine measures (e.g. Oral hydration) and meds don't work, rehab exercises to retrain the veins and arteries to self-regulate can be very helpful.

In brief: Depends

The prognosis for individuals with orthostatic hypotension depends on the underlying cause of the condition.
The prognosis of orthostatic hypotension may include the duration, chances of complications, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period, survival rates, death rates. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
