Qualitest merged with this new company Par and are using 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. The Walgreens pharmicists insist this new version is the same as the original Qualitest but my body says different. I think the generic used to have some fludrocortisone in it and the Cortef did not. That may be the amount I am missing now. I have always done well with .1 mg of fludrocortisone once daily but have had to take a half tab more to hold me up lately. Blood pressure runs low, very dry skin and hair and losing some weight. I am also Hypothyroid and have osteoporosis so take meds for that. My question is: Does anyone take a hydro product that has some Fludrocortisone(salt retaining hormone) in it yet or are all the manufacturers using the Cortef formula? Is there a website that could answer this question for me?
