I just started taking Midodrine 5 days ago. I have the normal side effects, tingling scalp and goosebumps. Do these side effects lessen as you continue to take the medicine? It is really helping keep my BP up!
It was probably around a month. He had started taking it, then we reduced him from 10mg to 5mg (3x per day) for a while-which he had no side effects on the lower dose. Once he went back up to 10 mg, it probably took about a month before he stopped complaining of the crawly tingly scalp and skin.
I was taking 6, 5mg pills a day and for the beginning it was bearable but the tingling became so severe it even bothered me even during sleeping, after I stopped taking it a few weeks ago all my symptoms worsened, but that's probably because I was just getting worse and didn't notice it since I was on the meds.
