Child gets fatigue, terrible feeling after using midorine. Any thoughts?

Hi, my son has POTS and has tried Midodrine for five weeks. He said it made him feel terrible and had extreme fatigue . He struggles with fatigue all the time, but said it was twice as bad with the Midorine. This drug has helped alot of kids with POTS so was wishing it had worked for us. The Cardiologist wants to know if he wants to try it again, but my son will have no part of it. What are your thoughts?

Cardiologist 's  Response
hi, the optimal therapy for POTS is uncertain. Exacerbating factors , medications, dehydration and inactivity should be avoided. A high salt diet, oral fluid intake and hydrocortisone can be some times helpful , so consult your cardiologist and desire.
