Does Midodrine often raise only diastolic blood pressure?


Senior Member
I have noticed the same thing...that my diastolic frequently rises without much change in my systolic pressure when I'm taking midodrine.

@Ruthie24 for whatever reason, this isn't happening to me anymore and my BP right now is 98/65 which is still a pretty decent BP for me and a very good pulse pressure for me. The 2.5 mg version by Mylan works well for me and I just cut them into whatever dosage combinations that I need.
