Florinef 0.1mg Tablets

(fludrocortisone acetate)

Florinef is used for the treatment of adrenal insufficiency (hypoadrenocorticism, Addison's Disease).

Addison's Disease is a condition where the adrenal gland is unable to produce mineralcorticoid hormones. These hormones are responsible for the body's balance of sodium and potassium. The main function of these two electrolytes is to maintain the structure of cells. Sodium maintains the integrity of the fluid inside the cell, and potassium is the mineral outside the cell. Two other electrolytes also serve cellular fluid integrity, but to a lessor degree.

When the adrenal gland cannot produce adequate amounts mineralcorticoids, the resultant sodium and potassium imbalance can trigger a circulatory shock where intracellular and extracellular fluid is compromised that then puts stress on the heart in it's attempt to supply adequate amounts of blood to the rest of the body. This can lead to the point of circulatory collapse and death.

Addison's Disease Symptoms include:
  • Lethargy and fatigue
  • Loss of appetite and weight loss
  • Diarrhea along with increased thirst
  • Vomiting as a result of a critically dehydrated condition
Each tablet contains 0,1 mg fludrocortisone acetate and the 9-alpha-fluoro derivative of hydrocortisone.
