Will 0.1mg florinef (fludrocortisone) deplete potassium. Will 99mg potassium 4 times a day be ok?

In brief: Florinef (fludrocortisone) potassium

Florinef (fludrocortisone) will lower potassium in most people, although much depends on why you are on the Florinef (fludrocortisone) in the first place.
Whether or not it will lower it too much is very variable, and you need to see your doctor, who will want to check your potassium. You may or may not need potassium supplements.
