... Hello again. I again agree with MJ. A primary should be on hydrocortisone, not prednisone and if you had a bad reaction, you were on too high of a dose and you were experiencing steroid psychosis. ... (8 replies)
... First, why do you take prednisone instead of hydrocortisone? ... (8 replies)
... I will give you more food for thought, all of which disagrees the other poster. A replacement dose or hydrocortisone (short acting) is at least 25 mg and Medrol (long acting) lasts a lot longer than hydrocortisone. Do the research and you'll see the other poster has it wrong about HC lasting longer than Medrol. Medrol is much stonger, lasts much longer. I haven't seen... (7 replies)

... that is, how long approximately they will last. Short will go into effect quickly and are hydrocortisone and medrol, medium are like prednisone. ... (7 replies)
... i started out on prednisone and florinef but after 6 months i switched to hydrocortisone by itself and i feel MUCH better on the hydrocortisone (also called cortef). i highly recommend making the switch. I have more level energy and moods now, less water retention, more even weight gain, and better sleep. the only disadvantage to it is that you have to take it more than once... (16 replies)
... Prednisone... hmm well soon you will gain the weight back and probably more. Not the best choice IMHO for replacement as it will interfere with sleep and not give you a normal rhythm for the body but you only have to take it once a day. Prednisone lasts 18-36 hours. A normal body has a rise in cortisol (which the pred is replacing) that is highest at roughly 8am, falls to... (16 replies)
... Your daughters doctor should lose his license. 10 mg of dex is equal to 1600 mg of hydrocortisone and 400 mg of prednisone so she had the equivalences of 11,200 mg of HC and 2800 mg of prednisone over 7 days. That goes way beyond an insane amount. ... (22 replies)
Dexamethazone?
Apr 29, 2008
... Well... HC does contain tiny amounts of minercortosteroids but it is very tiny. Hydrocortisone is the steroid most like what the body makes. ... (6 replies)
... I see two natural sources. One is OTC: Pregnenolone: From an endocrine functional definition glossery: Pregnenolone is a natural hormone made from cholesterol in the body. Pregnenolone is an intermediate in the synthesis of all steroid hormones. It is synthesized inside the mitochondria, the tiny "power plants" found in each cell. Pregnenolone is synthesized from...

... Now, prednisone and dexamethasone are long acting steroids. ... (14 replies)
... My endo dr. just blames me for gaining the weight, saying that what I take for steriods is a 'very normal dose'. Are other types of steroids like prednisone or hydrocortisone any better or worse? ... (14 replies)
... mg of hydrocortisone is a LOT. ... (29 replies)
... You have every reason to be concerned. Prednisone has a lot of side effects. While it has the ease of having once a day dosage, it does not give the body a break. ... (2 replies)
... when i was diagnosed they started me off on intramuscular injections of hydrocortisone, and the next day i started taking prednisone and florinef orally. ... (10 replies)
... Also, cortef and hydrocortisone effect your bones less than some of the other longer acting steroids such as prednisone and deximethisone. Keep that in mind. ... (3 replies)
... Sorry for the repeat post... the first one didn't show up until way after I posted my second one... maybe it was my computer?? Sherri :)~ (1 replies)
... I have been researching these and the more I learn the more I keep mixing them up and getting confused. I am trying to figure out dosage for each of them for low cortisol.... I fit ALLLLLL of the symptoms, but when I had the acth test done it was normal. Plus I eat a ton of salt, which I told them that. I asked them to check "whatever" gives the adrenal gland what it needs and... (1 replies)
... that the doc was treating with 60 mg of prednisone for about 6 months. ... (12 replies)
... If you receive an early diagnosis of Addison's disease, treatment may involve taking prescription corticosteroids. Because your body isn't producing sufficient steroid hormones, your doctor may have you take one or more hormones to replace the deficiency. Cortisol is replaced using hydrocortisone (Cortef), prednisone or cortisone. Fludrocortisone (Florinef) replaces... (3 replies)

... Hi. I'm responding to the discussion about cortef and hydrocortisone for secondary AD. I take 0.1 mg.florineff every day for mineral corticoids and I take 7 mg. of prednisone every other day. ... (14 replies)
