Midodrine works by constricting (narrowing) the blood vessels and increasing blood pressure.

Midodrine is used to treat low blood pressure (hypotension) that causes severe dizziness or a light-headed feeling, like you might pass out. This medicine is for use only when low blood pressure affects daily life. Midodrine may not improve your ability to perform daily activities.
