Great product, highly recommend
Marley has been taking Fludrocortisone for 6 months and is doing very well. He takes a half a pill every 12hrs. He has Addison's and Fludrocortisone has balanced and maintained his levels very well. Without this medicine Marley would not be with us any longer so this has saved his life.

QUESTION
My vet wants to stop fluorine and start him on injections each month what are the risks for him.
ANSWERS (1)
Taking a steroid injection once monthly versus a steroid pill daily comes with the same side effects and risks. However, your pet may experience an injection site reaction, such as pain, swelling, and redness, which is rare, but can occur with any injection,. If you have any concerns, speak with your veterinarian. Taking a monthly injection may work better for some animals, while taking an oral pill daily may work better for others.

What is Fludrocortisone?

Fludrocortisone is used by veterinarians in the treatment of Addison's Disease. Fludrocortisone requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per tablet.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Easy to administer
  • Once a day dosing, typically

How it Works:

Fludrocortisone acetate is a mineralocorticoid, similar in action to aldosterone, which acts on the kidney to help balance the concentration of sodium and potassium in your pet's body.

Cautions:

If your pet experiences increased blood pressure, sudden weight gain, difficulty breathing, hives, or swelling of the lips, tongue or face, stop giving Fludrocortisone and seek emergency veterinary medical attention.

Brand Name:

Florinef (Bristol-Myers Squibb)

Generic Name:

Fludrocortisone (flew-dro-cort'-ih-zone)

What is Fludrocortisone:

Fludrocortisone is a corticosteroid used to treat conditions in which the body does not produce enough of its own steroids, such as Addison's disease. Fludrocortisone may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving fludrocortisone to my pet:

Do not give fludrocortisone to your pet if the pet has a serious bacterial, viral or fungal infection. Fludrocortisone weakens the pet's 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 veterinarian if the pet is pregnant or lactating.

What is the most important information I should know about fludrocortisone:

Fludrocortisone is a prescription medication that is commonly used by veterinarians in dogs and cats for the treatment of Addison's disease. Fludrocortisone is available as 0.1mg scored tablets. Fludrocortisone should not be stopped suddenly. There should be a gradual reduction in dosage before stopping. Fludrocortisone should be taken with food to lessen stomach upset. Contact the veterinarian if the pet develops behavior changes, swelling, or unusual weight gain.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it almost time for the next dose, skip the dose missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of this medication.

What should I avoid while giving Fludrocortisone to my pet:

Avoid sources of infection. Do not use any vaccines without checking with the veterinarian.

What are the possible side effects of Fludrocortisone:

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving fludrocortisone and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives), increased blood pressure or sudden weight gain. Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving fludrocortisone and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences insomnia, nausea, vomiting or stomach upset, fatigue, muscle weakness or joint pain, problems with diabetes control or increased hunger or thirst. Other side effects that occur rarely, usually with high doses of fludrocortisone include thinning of the skin, cataracts, glaucoma, behavior changes. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What other drugs will affect Fludrocortisone:

Do not give any other over the counter or prescription medications, including herbal products, during treatment with fludrocortisone without first talking to the veterinarian. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is taking Phenobarbital, furosemide, insulin or glipizide, phenytoin, digoxin, warfarin, or aspirin. Drugs other than those listed may interact with fludrocortisone resulting in side effects or altered effectiveness.

Where can I get more information:

Your pharmacist has additional information about Fludrocortisone written for health professionals that you may read.

Call your veterinarian for medical advice about any side effects to your pet. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
