Droxidopa / Pyridostigmine in Orthostatic Hypotension
Treatment Trial of Droxidopa and Pyridostigmine to Improve Orthostatic Hypotension Without Aggravating Supine Hypertension
The hypothesis is that pyridostigmine will improve the safety factor of ganglionic neural transmission, while Droxidopa will replete the postganglionic neuron of norepinephrine (NE). This combination should result in enhanced orthostatic release of NE. The investigators have already demonstrated that pyridostigmine does not raise supine blood pressure.
