What is chance of anaphylaxis from fludrocortisone? Terrified of new drugs. I've taken beclometasone fine, which is a corticosteroid too,

In brief: Hard to predict

Beclometasone is different from Fludrocortisone because the latter is mineralocorticoid with glucocorticoid, which means Fludrocortisone also helps regulate salt intake ; decretion.
Beclometasone controls the rate of protein synthesis and prevent inflammation. Hard to predict its anaphylaxis from beclometasone.
