Is there any reason fludrocortisone would cause diziness after 2 weeks? maybe not the florinef? i have dysautonomia.

Give it more time: Florinef (fludrocortisone) is supposed to expand blood volume, and thereby supports blood pressure in people with dysautonomia.
It does take a few weeks for Florinef (fludrocortisone) to have its effect on blood volume. Give it a longer time, perhaps does needs to go up, but definitely report this to your prescribing doctor.
