Abrupt withdrawal of fludrocortisone will cause adrenal suppression. The symptoms of adrenal suppression are weight loss, hyperpigmentation (the darkening of the skin) and vomiting are some signs of primary adrenal suppression that others may notice about you. Irritability, depression, eventual dehydration, hypotension (low blood pressure), muscle fatigue and weakness are some symptoms of this type of adrenal suppression, as well as muscle or joint pain and diarrhea.
