... The timing and dosage of your cortisol is VERY IMPORTANT. Some doctors will prescribe 5 mg of prednisone once daily. This is the prescription that I started with. The problem with a single dosage of prednisone is that it takes several hours for it to "kick in". ... (5 replies)

... fine without taking 5 mg at 8 pm like I did for 12 years. You have to do what works best for you, but what I do is very normal for an Addisonian. I used to take Prednisone for my morning dose because, like you say, it has a longer shelf life. That worked out fine for me. ... (3 replies)
... I am very sorry to hear all of this.. very sorry, and I am sorry that I'm not going to write much as I'm exhausted & not feeling well, but I couldn't just read this without writing a little something. YES, low cortisol can certainly turn into Addison's, and it sounds like her adrenals are insufficient/exhausted, and perhaps not producing any cortisol on their own. She was... (7 replies)
... I'm an American citizen, but I currently live in Ecuador. I have found an excellent doctor here who today mentioned that my regular dose of Dexamethazone could be causing some other side effects I'm fighting (edema, low bone density). He suggested changing to deflazacort. It's not available in the US, and my research tells me that's because of political and money issues,... (0 replies)

... truation. It's horrible. I increase my prednisone during this time so that I'm not laying in bed in adrenal crisis mode, but I'm already on such a high dose of prednisone for Addison's and some other stresses in my body and I hate to always increase the steroids..... ... (0 replies)
