... I am new here also. My pharmacy switched me from Cortef to Hydocort the last refill I received. I have been on the Cortef for 7 years since dx.(adrenal insuff.) I take 10, 5 and 5.

... Sorry I don't have an answer MMK4, but I'd like to echo your question. I asked my MD to change me from compounded hydrocortisone to generic (CVS) a couple of months ago, also because of cost. I don't have symptoms similar to what you describe, but I have lost stability (periodic & random weakness, ache, not enough stamina to mow my small yard anymore). Since several things... (6 replies)
... ing the Cortef formula for this product. Over many, many years of taking hydro for Addison's I have found the Cortef formula does not work as well for me as the generic hydro.

... I had just the opposite problem. The first HC I took was Cortef and I had a very bad reaction to it. After that I have taken Merck and Westard without any problems. I know others that have not done well on Cortef, but probably the opposite is true as in your case. If you were feeling well on Cortef why not switch back? Also you might try splitting up your dose like 15 in the... (6 replies)
