I have low blood pressure. First Dr. said take only when experiencing symptoms now take every day. I have gained weight with this medication. around my stomach. Does Fludrocortisone cause weight gain. We can't seem to control the low Blood Pressure. It's been going on for quite a few months. I get veru sleepy and don't feel good till the symptoms go away.
