FDA Proposes Withdrawal of Low Blood Pressure Drug

This is really scary. I, along with many other POTS patients, rely upon midodrine (proAmatine) to keep my blood pressure at a high enough level that I can stand for short periods and work around the house. The FDA is proposing that they take this drug off the market because studies that verify the clinical benefit of the drug have not been done. I for one can attest to the fact that it is very helpful for many POTS patients. I hope that they reconsider this action and keep this drug available for those of us that find it to be helpful. The press release from the FDA is linked below if you are interested in reading it.
