Works amazingly.

Have been taking Florinef faily for over two years. I've been quite healthy in this time with no noticeable side effects.
I don't remember any side effects but I took it as a child and never really remember anyone telling me about possible side effects to be on watch for.
MY BP is constantly very low, even with daily Florinef. I supplement with dietary sodium intake and have found that very helpful. My body is used to the low BP, so it doesn't bother me as much anymore. Approx. once every few months my BP will spike to near-normal levels and I will have a severe and debilitating headache. This is generally helped by drinking lots of water (duh, right?). For the most part, Florinef is my friend.
