Florinef and thirst

I was put on Florinef last week and the only thing that I have noticed is that I am not crazy thirsty anymore. Is this what the Florinef is supposed to do?

Thanks, that is a good point, still important to drink Now I went from 0.05 mg to 0.1 mg because my blood pressure is still pretty low..

Re: Florinef and thirst

after I started on flornelf in marts this year, I have gained about 30 kg (60 pound) and my new doctor (which is so much smarter than my old one )
told me that I might not even need flornelf so now Im cutting down on them.
The thirst is not back yet and Im going down to half a pill twice a week now.
He told me about 50% of us with addison doesn't even need flornelf.
I think that is interesting because I have not met one with addison yet, that did not get it. Does everyone take it?
