Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether midodrine administration decreases duration of intravenous vasopressors and intensive care unit length of stay for patients in septic shock.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: midodrine
randomization to midodrine 20 mg every 8 hours to be increased to a maximum of 40 mg every 8 hours until intravenous vasopressor discontinuation
Drug: Midodrine
midodrine is metabolized to an active metabolite, desglymidodrine, which is an alpha adrenergic antagonist that causes vasoconstriction of both venous and arterial vasculature, thereby increasing blood pressure
Other Name: proamatine

Placebo Comparator: placebo
randomization to placebo control
Drug: placebo
placebo will be administered to double blind the study

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. duration of intravenous vasopressors [ Time Frame: from enrollment until discontinuation of intravenous vasopressors, expected to be 3-5 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. intensive care unit length of stay [ Time Frame: from enrollment until eligible for discharge from intensive care unit, expected to be 4-7 days ]
  2. re-institution of intravenous vasopressor [ Time Frame: from enrollment until hospital discharge, expected to be up to 30 days ]
  3. hospital length of stay [ Time Frame: from enrollment until hospital discharge, expected to be up to 30 days ]
  4. mortality [ Time Frame: from enrollment until hospital discharge, expected to be up to 30 days ]
  5. midodrine side effects requiring discontinuation [ Time Frame: from enrollment until hospital discharge, expected to be up to 30 days ]
    including supine hypertension and bradycardia
