What is it
Generic Florinef (fludrocortisone) is an oral medication, a synthetic corticosteroid used in treatment of low glucocorticoid levels due to adrenal gland problems, such as Addison’s disease, salt-losing adrenogenital syndrome and adrenocortical insufficiency. As a synthetic glucocorticoid, this medication is important in balancing the salt and water levels and for keeping the blood pressure at normal levels.
Classification and Mechanism of Action
The active ingredient of Generic Florinef is fludrocortisone, a synthetic corticosteroid with glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid properties. It is almost identical to cortisol, except it has fluorine instead of hydrogen. Fludrocortisone is even more potent in terms of electrolyte balance and carbohydrate metabolism than hydrocortisone, which is why it is a better choice in treatment of adrenocortical insufficiency.
