Basic Information On Florinef
Florinef is prescribed to treat Addison’s disease, which is a rare endocrine disorder characterized by low amount of steroid production by the adrenal glands. Lowered amounts of steroids can result in a hyperactive immune system. The Florinef drug is a high potency synthetic steroid that mimics the action of natural steroids. This drug is also used to treat symptoms of salt-losing adrenogenital syndrome that shows signs like low blood pressure and back pain.
Precautions/Side Effects For Florinef
Florinef or Fludrocortisone causes side effects like skin irritation and skin drying. It also causes skin to discolor. You may experience an acne outbreak even if you have never had acne. Wound healing is reduced. Hence, cuts or bruises could become septic. Caution must be exercised to avoid injuries. Nausea is also experienced by many individuals. Side effects like cramps, bloating and irregular stools are common. These symptoms are temporary and the body settles after getting used to the treatment. If you do not adjust to the medication, consult your physician before you continue using this drug.
It is essential that you avoid infections when taking Fludrocortisone, as even seemingly harmless ones like cold and flu can lead to complications like pneumonia which can be fatal. You should not take any live vaccination when you are on brand or generic Fludrocortisone tablets, as these vaccines contain antigens. This medication can also cause rapid weight gain that should not be ignored. It can lower levels of potassium that can result in heart arrhythmias and muscle weakness. These are serious side effects that should not go uninformed. It is not known if this drug can harm unborn fetus but steroids are known to pass into breast milk and may cause growth defects in an infant. If you are breast feeding, consult your doctor if you can continue to do so while on this medication.
The dosage depends on the condition and its severity. If an individual is being treated for Addison’s disease, the dose strength is usually 0.1 mg daily, which may be increased to 0.2 mg. If the blood pressure is increased as a result of treatment, the dosage of brand or generic Florinef is reduced to 0.05 mg. The recommended dosage for salt-losing adrenogenital syndrome is 0.1 mg. Florinef is mostly prescribed with cortisone or hydrocortisone. The combination treatment helps substitute adrenal activity efficiently, with minimal side effects.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
