I have postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome will midodrine help blood get back to heart when standing up?

In brief: Yes

Midodrine raises your blood pressure and thus prevents fainting or light-headedness by keeping blood circulation to the brain.
The heart will get more blood return and the reflex tachycardia will be less pronounced, or even be not triggered.
