Long Term Treatment With L-DOPS
Long Term Treatment With L-DOPS

This study is designed to supply L-DOPS (droxidopa) on a long term basis to patients with a genetic form of profound orthostatic hypotension, most commonly DBH deficiency. It also allows us to collect medical history information on this small population of patients that would allow us to determine if there are any complications from this type of treatment.
