how do I treat extreme variance between supine (includes sitting) hypertension and orthostatic hypotension?

I'm 53, a type-1 diabetic.  I recently suffered a mild stroke and am back at home, continuing rehab.  Part of my problem is managing my supine (lying and sitting) hypertension and orthostatic hypotension.  Swings can be exteme, up to 40-50 points.  I take lisinopril (currently on hold due to high potassium levels), clonidine and labatelol, along with lasix, among other meds.

Also, are there any studies or clinics currently working on this condition where I might get more info and/or possibly go for treatment?
