Hello Everyone, After a really bad spell where I was fainting almost every time I stood up, I tried Midodrine again. 2.5 mg three times per day. After three weeks, I needed to push the dose to 5 mg, three times/day. I lost 10 pounds in 20 days, and unfortunately, I need to gain some weight, not lose anymore. Has anyone else had this problem? I cannot tolerate Florinef, and my doctor at Mayo has told me to cut back to 2.5 again over the weekend to see what happens. I don't want to lose the energy the drug gives me, but the side effects are tough...no appetite, digestion issues, headache, etc. A quick note: Just read a study (will find the particulars) that found 2/3 of women are unhappy with the treatment they receive from their doctors: feeling like they're not understood, doctor dismissive, not spending enough time with them. It appears we're not the only ones!
