John,

Are you primary or secondary? Do you take Florinef? Low sodium is a sign of needing Florinef. You are getting a bit of it now from the Hydrocortisone. Are you adding salt to your food? We need to.

I have easily switched back & forth several times from Hydrocortisone to prednisone. Since you were taking the max dose of prednisone it made you feel good. You are also taking the max dose of Hydrocortisone, but it doesn't last as long so splitting it helps. It might help to take the dose like this.... 15mg a.m., 10mg about noon & 5mg about 5pm. Have you gained weight on the max doses?

My testosterone was nil so even though I am a women so I am using a gel replacement...when I remember. Low testosterone is very common with addisons.

Are you taking thyroid meds? Have you had a bone scan?

Wanda
