Woohoo! This is wonderful news for POTSies! The FDA is reconsidering the midodrine recall, and we now need the drug company to follow suit, since they were planning on pulling the drug anyway. I would like to thank Lauren from Where Did I Get This Lemon? for her post on Midodrine (ProAmatine):
"According to The New York Times, the FDA has reconsidered its decision to remove midodrine (ProAmatine) from the market due to the many complaints received by POTS patients like us that find it necessary for everyday living. The FDA has backtracked from it's original decision, and will now allow midodrine to continue to be sold.(YAY!) Finally, the chronically ill are listened to by a government agency…that must be some kind of record! Good news all around.
