FDA approval of droxidopa
Droxidopa has received FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approval for the treatment of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension, a condition characterized by a sudden drop in blood pressure upon standing (supine hypertension).
Active ingredient of droxidopa and mechanism of action
Droxidopa is in a class of medications called alpha and beta-adrenergic agonists. It works by increasing the levels of norepinephrine in the body. Norepinephrine is a neurotransmitter that helps to constrict blood vessels and increase blood pressure. By increasing norepinephrine levels, droxidopa helps to raise blood pressure and improve symptoms of NOH (symptomatic neurogenic orthostatic hypotension).
Uses of droxidopa
Droxidopa is primarily used for the treatment of symptomatic neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (symptomatic NOH) in patients with primary autonomic failure (Parkinson’s disease, multiple system atrophy, and pure autonomic failure), dopamine beta-hydroxylase deficiency, and non-diabetic autonomic neuropathy. It helps alleviate symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, and fainting associated with NOH.
NOH is a type of low blood pressure that occurs when a person stands up or sits up from a lying position. It is typically caused by disorders of the autonomic nervous system, which is responsible for regulating bodily functions like heart rate and blood pressure.
Droxidopa is used by people whose daily activities are severely affected by this condition, even after other treatments are used. Treatment of symptomatic NOH is aimed at increasing standing systolic blood pressure into the range of approximately 50 to 150 mmHg.
Forms of droxidopa
Droxidopa is available in the form of oral capsules.
Dosage of droxidopa
The dosage of droxidopa will vary depending on the individual’s condition and the recommendation of their healthcare provider. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by your healthcare provider.

- Droxidopa can increase the risk of certain cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks or arrhythmias. If you have severe heart disease, it is generally recommended to avoid taking droxidopa due to the potential risks involved
- Droxidopa may interact with other medications, including certain blood pressure medications and medications that increase norepinephrine levels. Inform your healthcare provider about all the medicines you are taking
