1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Midodrine will keep your blood pressure up when you stand and as a result you won't have a reflex tachycardia (fast heart rate) .
Salt retaining steroids are also an option.

In brief: Unlikely

Midodrine does not have much value in treating pots.
The main treatment is salt and hydration also beta blockers.
