Ive had addisons for 9 years and generally stay well now, with daily doses of hydrocortisone and fuldrocortisone , together with thyroxine for my low thyroid levels.
However when I get an illness it hits me hard and I have to double up quickly my hydrocortisone. But how long do I need to stay doubled up for ? It's a tricky process of coming down off them to the normal level again. Just wondering of any advice anyone with this condition can give me ?
I see "10 months ago".....blah, blah, blah....the same thing Months with numbers in front....I have Addison's Disease. I'd like to listen, talk, learn, be here, be heard..IS ANYONE OUT THERE AND WILL ANYONE COME IN FOR THE "NOW?"Thanks....
Hi, this will be my first time taking solu-Cortef shot( that large of amount) plus I will have to double my Cortef, ( currently take Cortef 35 mg daily) I'm scared to be honest, I've never taken this much b4, what's ur experience with having to take so much, plus doubling my dose, I'm scared it's going to make me feel bad and give me side effects, although I'm sure il need it. Thanks in advance...
