Orthostatic hypotension is encountered frequently in everyday practice. It is often very disabling because of its troublesome symptomalogy. Orthostatic hypotension may be due to several causes and can be easily diagnosed by measuring blood pressure and heart rate after 3 minutes in upright posture. Its treatment comprises in all cases non-pharmacological interventions which can be associated whenever required by medications, in particular midodrine and fludrocortisone.
