I started taking Droxidopa Oral instead of Midodrine for my severe orthostatic hypotension. As I titrated up my dose by 100 mg weekly, from 100 to 600 mg, it seemed to work as well as Midodrine, but not as well as when I took Midodrine and Adderall together. Droxidopa gives me nasty headaches that are becoming less severe as time goes on, but it also makes me very drowsy. I think I'd like to get my energy back since the Adderall helped so much with my fatigue!
