This morning on waking up at 0900, Michael took my BPs & HRs for the test that Vanderbilt ask their patients to do at home before a trial -

lying down - 120/50  67
standing 1 - 115/55  118
standing 3 - 120/50  125
standing 5 - 118/55  125
standing 10 - 115/50  117

These readings were taken on Midodrine 10mg X4/day
Desmopressin 0.2mg/day

58bpm difference between higher and lower, and 50 bpm difference at the end of 10minutes. And my HR was climbing still post 10 minutes.

Those BP readings are fairly high for me considering that w/out meds my BP is usually around 105/48.
