    Comment:
    was diagnoised with neuro/cardio-sycope, BP would drop after fainting and seizure would happen..Florinef stopped this and never had a spell since taking it....until my ANYRISM. I think Florinef raised my BP to high and may have caused my anyrism. We are still investigating this possibility but want to warn others.

    I have been taking Florinef for over 5 years for low BP. It has been wonderful! I used to feel extremely tired all the time and would faint on a frequent basis. Since I have started this med I feel great and haven't had a single faining spell!
