Study On Octreotide And Midodrine To Treat Pots


Recommended Posts

Hi, Ellen...I don't have information on this particular study. It is possible, though, that I was part of this study. For several months, I was taking octreotide and sometimes in combination with midodrine. The octreotide really improved my symptoms until I developed gall bladder problems.

I preferred octreotide because I didn't get the side effects (chills, itchy scalp, etc) that I got with midodrine.

The downside of octreotide is is cost. If you are near Morgantown, WV, I would suggest making an appointment with Dr. Hoeldtke. He is really an expert on POTS, with his main interest being on the use of octreotide.
