Now I am trying again and am gaining weight and again very agitated. ## I do the same thing. Can you try lowering the dose? I've found with a lower dose I still get the benefits but I don't get agitated. I hate that. Good luck. ## Do not change your dose without first checking with your doctor. I have Addisons disease and have taken florinef and cortef for 54 years, it's what keeps me alive.

fludrocortisone midrodrine and abilify okay together??

I have been on Fludrocortisone, Midrodrine, and Pristiq for depression, the first two 3 months for POTS , but, now depression has gotten bad. What can i do to stop the steroid since depression is one of the side-effects? ## Hello, Sandy! How are you? I'm sorry about the way you're feeling. Since you've been on it this long, a slow taper is the safest and best way to stop it, to avoid dangerous complications. Have you consulted your doctor? They should be able to help you set up an appropriate tapering schedule. What dosage of Pristiq are you on? You may need a dosage adjustment, or to add another medication. The typical side effects of Pristiq may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes.

It is used primarily to replace the missing hormone aldosterone in various forms of adrenal insufficiency such as Addison's disease and the classic salt wasting (21-hydroxylase deficiency) form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
