Florinef, also known as fludrocortisone acetate, is a medication that is primarily indicated for specific conditions related to adrenal insufficiency. It is used as partial replacement therapy for primary and secondary adrenocortical insufficiency in Addison's disease and for the treatment of salt-losing adrenogenital syndrome.

Florinef is a synthetic adrenocortical steroid with potent mineralocorticoid properties and high glucocorticoid activity. It helps regulate salt and water balance, blood pressure, and carbohydrate metabolism in the body.
