Hi, Mollie,

My 22 year old son was diagnosed May, 2011 and left the hospital on hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone. His endocrinologist switched him to 5 mg of prednisone with breakfast. The switch improved my son's quality of life significantly and he's now working again. You should be discussing your symptoms and treatment options with an endocrinologist. I did have concerns about prednisone, but the Endo does not. We are still new to this and are also looking for alternatives. I hope that someone else on the forum responds to you. Also, throughout this forum there are several discussions regarding "Hydrocortisone vs. Prednisone" -- reading those discussions may help you.
