... roduces at different times of the day. To answer your other question, Cortef or hydrocortisone is not as strong as prednisone, and it is a natural hormone where prednisone is synthetic. ... (3 replies)

... After I was on Prednisone for a very severe allergic reaction and then tapered off very slowly--couldn't do it any other way, I came down with what is called Steroid Induced Cushings. My adrenal gland was fine. But it had shut down while I was on prednisone. Now my serum cortisol is "normal" but on the low side. So I acquired Cushings just from taking steroids. (1 replies)

... Hey there, I am newly diagnosed - under two months..... but it has taken in my opinion at least 10yrs of mis-diagnosis blaming mental health for everything that has pointed to Addison's :( Even my doctor has said the same thing, but that's a complaint for a different day LOL. I do occasionally get some of the things you mentioned, tremors, vertigo, body ache, extreme... (3 replies)
... My electrolytes and BP both seem to be fine. I read about a case with autoimmune encephalopathy associated with Addisons. Usually a very rare side effect of Hashimoto's thyroiditis. The good news is I respond quickly to steroids, 50-60mgs of prednisone, instead of my usual 10. (3 replies)

... My daughter was diagnosed in 2009 with Addison's. Was on Hydrocortisone and Florinef without any problems and only a very few ER visits for crisis situations.

She has been stress dosed, hospitalized twice since 1/1/16, and... (0 replies)

That is in addition to cortisone or Prednisone (glucocorticoid). You should feel better once both get adjusted to the right dose! (9 replies)
... Hi Jdar and Noevr, I'm sorry you are going through this. A few points to consider. 1. Addison's or cortisol deficiency is not difficult to control; 2. 7.5 mg of hydrocortisone is a tiny dose. Well below full replacement and very low for even a mild deficiency. 20-25 mg of hydrocortisone is equivalent to 5 mg of prednisone. The typical starting dose for a female... (4 replies)

... unpredictable. My endocrinologist doesn't say much other than "watch your sugar and carb intake", and "increase your cortef" ... I've thought about switching to prednisone or medrol to give me more even steroid coverage, and perhaps this too would help with the erratic blood sugar. ... (3 replies)
