I was diagnosed with Addison's in August of this yr. Started on Florinef and prednisone by my family dr until I could get in with endo. The florinef made me feel so dizzy and out of sorts. I took it 3 days and each time about 20 min later it made me that way. My endocrinologist told me that I'd eventually have to start it again because my sodium is still slightly low and B/P is staying low. Instead of Prednisone I'm now only on Cortef 20 in the am and 10 in the pm. Did anyone else have trouble with Florinef after just starting? I thought well maybe it's one of those meds your body has to adjust to but it made me feel worse.
