Product Description

 

Active Ingredients

The name of this medicine is Florinef. Each tablet contains 0.1mg of the active ingredient, fludrocortisone acetate.
Florinef tablets belong to a group of medicines called steroids. Their full name is corticosteroids. These corticosteroids occur naturally in the body, and help to maintain health and well-being.

Boosting your body with extra corticosteroid (such as Florinef tablets) is an effective way to treat various illnesses involving inflammation (swelling) in the body. Florinef tablets reduce this inflammation, which could otherwise go on making your condition worse. You must take this medicine regularly to get maximum benefit from it.

To treat Adrenal hyperplasia the usual daily dose range is: 0.1mg (one tablet) to 0.2mg (2 tablets).
