Florinef is a steroid medication with proved efficacy in the curative treatment of different conditions caused by the deficiency of steroid hormones, especially Addison’s disease. The active ingredient replenishes the deficiency and participates in the general metabolic reactions, including catabolic transformations of minerals and carbohydrates, and causes the retention of sodium ions levels, which also allows using it to treat the adrenogenital syndrome.
