Mar Midodrine Indication

Midodrine belongs to the class of medications known as vasopressors. It is used to relieve symptoms of Low Blood Pressure (such as dizziness, lightheadedness, and fainting) for people with Parkinson's Disease, Diabetes, Bradbury-Eggleston syndrome, and Shy-Drager syndrome. It works by constricting the blood vessels, causing an increase in blood pressure.

Mar Midodrine may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Mar Midodrine may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Mar Midodrine may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Mar Midodrine for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Mar Midodrine, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Mar Midodrine without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Mar Midodrine to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Mar Midodrine if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Mar Midodrine Dosage

The usual recommended starting dose of midodrine for adults is 2.5 mg 3 times daily, taken with or without food. Midodrine may also be taken as frequently as 6 times a day, as long as the maximum daily dose of 30 mg is not exceeded. The last midodrine dose of the day should be taken at least 4 hours before bedtime. People with Kidney Disease may need lower doses.

Midodrine will be started under close medical supervision, usually in a hospital, clinic, or doctor's office. Both lying and sitting blood pressures should be measured every hour for 3 hours after the first and second doses of midodrine therapy and also when there is an increase in dose. Thereafter, blood pressures should be measured daily for the first month, and then twice weekly while on therapy. Midodrine should only be continued if the person appears to have improvement in their symptoms during the initial treatment.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to use Mar Midodrine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Mar Midodrine at room temperature, protect it from light, and keep it away from heat and out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Mar Midodrine Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health.
