A 27-year-old male asked:
does fludrocortisone just lower potassium and raise sodium or are other electrolytes affected?

Side effects: In my experience prescribing fludrocortisone for many years to treat postural hypotension, I have not seen significant side effects in addition to its action in retaining sodium. However it is a steroid with numerous potential side effects listed but its anti-inflammatory potential is weak. Your pharmacist can also answer this question for you.
