    I take Methadone for chronic pain, which after time drove my blood pressure low, especially on standing up. It got so bad I could hardly walk around my hone, It was finally determined that my blood pressure was going low because of the Methadone. I take two 2.5 pills at 8 a.m. and 12 noon and one at 4 p.m. This medication has given my live back to me. Could not do without it.

    I have been taking this drug for 3 years and I couldn't operate without it. I have orthostatic hypotension with serious syncope spells. My dosage has increased over the years to 7.5mg from the original 2.5.

    I used to pass out/faint often after standing too long, working out or just standing up to quickly. I take it twice a day and have notice significant changes. I can workout (and by that I mean ride my bike for 30 mins and not fall over) and do everything else with no problem. It has worked for me!
