Florinef Day #2

Blog entry posted by lnester7, Aug 22, 2012.

Sooo I went to see electro, basically he told me to push thorough it and exercise for POTs, I am also getting a TTT but he said that he didn't expect anything different, besides that I have mild dysautonomia. My respect to those with severe one!!!!

He did give me Florinef to try. I started half a dose (.5mg) (he didn't tell me to do so, but I have seen posts here). So far sooooo good. Not sure if it is me recovering from the last crash or this pill doing something, whatever it is, I have been more vertical today. I am very exited w progress. I feel a little dizzy kind of high. Not sure what is causing this. Might be a side effect of the florinef.

Debating on starting some exercise, I think will hold of for a week. My STD (short term Disability) got on hold today so might have to go back to work. Not sure what I am doing yet, but if I feel as good as today, I am ready to go back soon!!!!!

    Yeah TX!!! For some reason Dr didn't start me slow. I did what I read, so far so good. He is checking potassium soon too. Will keep you posted.

    i heard that florinef has to be started at a small dose and increased very slowly.i would start at at a lower dose and increase very slowly. make sure you check your potassium from time to time as it might get too low.
