Nebraska Lady, The docs read in the text book that we should have 30mg a day. That is what they started me on....45 pounds later I learned from people on addisons forums that the max dose of 30mg might cause weight gain & a puffy face. My endo should have cut my dose when he saw how much I had gained. Anyway I tapered myself slowly by 2.5mg at a time with a couple weeks in between tapers.

With that big a change you should be eating everything in sight. Would have made good sense to start you on 20mg & increase if necessary.

When taking hydrocortisone (like cortef only different fillers) I take 5mg at 6am, get up about 7 or 7:30, take another 5mg, 5mg about noon & 5mg about 5pm. At the moment I am taking 5mg prednisone, split 3 times.

Take care,
Wanda
