Hi all, I've been on fludrocortisone for quite a while now for hypotension, related to adrenal fatigue. When I was perscribed it I had no instructions on how to use it. I gained knowledge by looking up on the internet what other people do when on it. I was perscribed .1mg (one tablet). Though for quite a long time I only needed half a tablet. That was until Kings brand of fludrocortisone stopped selling them to the chemist and now I get the Squibb 429 brand. I found that just taking half a tablet each day was too little. So I was trying 3 quarters of a tablet every other day. I started experimenting in having 3 quarters as my normal dose. But since I went to 3 quarters I'm having some issues. I've tried going back down to half a tablet. But I go back to feeling light headed and weak. The longer I've gone on using 3 quarters the more weaker I've become. In the last few days its become very noticable. I've noticed that the water I'm drinking is going through me, even if I add in salt. One thing I've never tried with fludrocortisone is taking potassium. I've read that being low on potassium can cause the problems I've had. I tried to get some blood tests done. But my doctor is on vacation until next week. What are peoples advice on potassium while on fludrocortisone. Do many people take added potassium, either via supplements or specific foods? I'm thinking of trying to eat potassium rich foods. As anyone had any success doing that? Thanks for any advice you guys can give, and also thanks for listening to me.
