Could fludrocortisone cause reflex bradycardia if blood volume increases too much increasing central pressures?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Theoretically

It is possible that you could get reflex bradycardia from volume increase but the amount of volume required to trigger this reflex would not be achievable with florinef (fludrocortisone) alone.
Bradycardia is a common response in dysautonomia which florinef (fludrocortisone) is used for in treatment. I suspect the reflex bradycardia is actually the physiologic response from dysautonomia not volume overload.

Reflex bradycardia can occur when blood pressure is too high
