Fludrocortisone Acetate is a medication prescribed to treat Addison's Disease (hypoadrenocorticism). It works with the help of a mineralocorticoid that acts on the kidney to help balance the amounts of sodium and potassium in the body. This medication may also be used to lower elevated levels of potassium in the blood. Customers may receive this drug under the name Florinef.

Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.


Fludrocortisone acetate tablets are indicated as partial replacement therapy for primary and secondary adrenocortical insufficiency in Addison's disease and for the treatment of salt-losing adrenogenital syndrome.

Possible Side Effects

Possible side effects include insomnia; nausea, vomiting or stomach upset; fatigue; muscle weakness or joint pain; problems with diabetes control; or increased hunger or thirst. If you notice these symptoms, contact your veterinarian, but do not discontinue use unless instructed. Rare side effects include thinning of the skin, cataracts, glaucoma, behavior changes; these typically occur when taking higher doses of the drug. Talk to your vet about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

Drug & Food Interactions

Corticosteroids are not for use in animals with systemic fungal infections and in those with a history of possible or known allergies to these agents.


Do not give Fludrocortisone to animals who have a serious bacterial, viral or fungal infection because this drug weakens the immune response and its ability to fight infections. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney or liver disease, heart disease, stomach ulcers, hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus or any other medical conditions. Also, tell your vet if the pet is pregnant or lactating.

This drug is FDA-approved for human use. However, it is common practice for veterinarians to prescribe such drugs for use in dogs and cats.
