Treating Symptomatic Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension With NORTHERA® (droxidopa)

NORTHERA is a prescription medication for adult patients that has been shown in clinical studies to reduce symptoms of:

Dizziness

Lightheadedness

Feeling that you are about to black out

These symptoms occur due to a condition called neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (nOH), which is a sustained drop in blood pressure when changing positions or standing. Reduced blood pressure when standing can occur in a number of neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease (PD), multiple system atrophy (MSA), and pure autonomic failure (PAF).

Effectiveness beyond 2 weeks of treatment has not been established, and your healthcare provider will decide if you should continue taking NORTHERA.

Do not take NORTHERA if you have a known allergy to NORTHERA or its ingredients.
