    So I am going to repeat by AT test (day one of VO2 max), and then I will have a VO2max test (Day 2).

    Have any of you tested while on OI meds and does it make a difference on your anaerobic threshold??
    I am on midodrine and florinef.

    I'd taken Yohimbe in the morning about 7 hours before the CPET, and my results were still miserable (about 50% VO2max of expected) on a single day test. If you still have PEM with OI being treated, then the CPET should still catch it. You could always ask the doctor.
