... Perhaps the steroids effect different bodies in different ways. I agree that prednisone is more difficult to digest and is more difficult on your liver, but I have felt the difference in terms of longer-acting affects. Over the past few days I have switched out my evening dose of hydrocortisone (10mg) for 2 mg of prednisone, and for the first time in a looooong time, I've... (8 replies)

... I hope you are getting the answers that you need regarding this disease. Hydrocortisone has given me my life back and I take 35 mg per day (an extra 5-10 on days when sleep is comprimised). I know that this is considered a high dose but anything less does not allow me to have a normal functioning day. I'm really in touch with my body and can tell the second that I need my...

... Justine, The prednisone won't hurt you for 2 months & probably wouldn't for long term. Many many people take it as their replacement. Thing is we are not taking massive doses...only a "replacement" dose. When on prednisone I tapered my dose to 5mg. 4mg a.m. & 1mg about 5pm. When first diagnosed docs usually prescribe at least the max dose. What they don't mention is that... (6 replies)

... I have had Addison's disease for almost 50 years. For the bulk of that time I have taken the standard 20mg in the morning and 10 mg at night dose. However I often times even missed my 10mg evening dose and once I recognized it corrected the situation. Of course I want to take the minimum dosage. I also take Florinef; just enough to keep my feet from swelling. I had major... (1 replies)
... Hi Pacerpilot, I just wanted to say I went to my endo and she started weaning me off of the prednisone in Oct. She started weaning me off by 1mg every 2 weeks and this Tuesday I will be down to 1mg in the morning. She is a great endo. Does my ACTH levels monthly and now biweekly. The last she checked my ACTH was 3.9, so my pituatary gland is kicking in. I really feel... (8 replies)
... Hi Missy, You mentioned that you had an adrenal crisis after surgery. That's really not that uncommon. However, do you have addisons disease or are you being treated because your adrenals aren't doing their thing because of the steriod treatment from the adrenal crisis. These are two very different conditions. If you don't have addisons, then yes, wean off the steriods.... (8 replies)
... When I was first diagnosed I was put on pretty high doses of HC for a few days and then tapered down. I am on 20mg HC which seems to be a pretty standard dose. ... (10 replies)
... 20mg is not a low dose IMHO... That is a complete replacement dose for a lot of people. I have no adrenals and while I currently take 25... I was taking 20 for a while. Also, I would never ever take a dose at dinner... unless of course you do not want to sleep. :D I take my last dose at 3. It is 5mg. The normal body wants a large dose in the morning, and roughly half of... (3 replies)
