See this article.

The drug-maker says they already had a plan to withdraw the med.

If you're on this med, you definitely want to contact your Dr. and come up with an alternate plan, it doesn't appear anyone wants to fund further trials.

u.s.a.
that is odd, maybe
I took that for awhile in 96 97 helped but then couldnt tolerate due to mcs
tried again in last year and again couldnt tolerate but thats me, I thought when i could tolerate it helped with the oxygen hunger a bit, which is on my mind right now as in a flare of that symptom

Otis, thanks so much for posting this information. I've been taking midodrine for years with no major side effects. I'm pretty sure it is helping me so I will not be happy if I have to lose this prescription. I will call my cardiologist tomorrow for an appointment.
