Addison's Disease Message Board

Addison's Disease Board Index

Were you sick with a cold, infection, dyhdrated or something when you had your crisis'. I have not had a crisis since being diagnosed in 1998 & feel very fortunate.

Have you tried splitting your daily 20mg differently? The normal way to take it, following a routine more like how a normal person would release cortisol is.....
10mg a.m.
5mg around noon
5mg between 4 & 5p.m.

2.5 florinef tablets is allot at once. Have you considered splitting it, half in the a.m. & half at noon? This would give you coverage later in the day. Is your blood pressure lower in the evening? If so this would help.

DHEA levels should be monitored carefully. It is not good to be above the range. I had to decrease to 12.5mg with 25mg maybe twice a week to stay in range. DHEA for me does not increase testosterone as it should so is not a cancer risk for me. I have no ovaries so that is probably why. 50mg puts me WAY above the range. Doctors seem to think this is the dose to take, but it must be adjusted after checking where you are in the range.

Hope you are feeling well.
