One particularly serious problem, the drop in blood pressure upon standing up (with risk of fainting
from falling) often responds to fludrocortisone
, a synthetic mineralocorticoid. Another common drug treatment is midodrine. Other treatments include "head-up tilt" (elevating the head of the whole bed by about 10 degrees), salt tablets or increasing salt in the diet, generous intake of fluids, and pressure (elastic) stockings. Avoidance of triggers of low blood pressure (such as hot weather, alcohol, dehydration
) are important. follow this link.
