Dr prescribed 2.5 MG hydrocortisone 3 x a day. I took the first dose at 4 this afternoon andnow have a dry cough. From pill? Dangerous or no big deal?
I've just realised I've missed my dose of hydrocortisone today (15mg) it's midnight now - do I wait until the morning now to take my dose?
Will be on daily cortef (hydrocortisone) at moderate dose, am curious if in addition to helping the problem i'm using it for if it'll also help hives, alrgc reactions?
I am to begin taking cortef (hydrocortisone) at moderate dose, prob for a couple years at least. What can I do to protect my health and what should I look out for?
I'd recommend: U follow up with your dr and endocrinologist who should closely monitor your pituitary and adrenal status. It's a sensitive issue to maintain and taper off someone on chronic steroid use.

I have an acth deficiency and take hydrocortisone daily.. I am starting to lift weights. Should I increase the dose when I add weight or reps.?
Does low dose cortef (hydrocortisone) heal the adrenals, helping the patient to feel well again and enabling them to eventually go off the drug? Non-addison's.
No: Taking any dose of steroid causes the adrenal glands to work less, as the pituitary gland regulates your adrenal hormone level. If your adrenal glands truly do not work, you need lifelong adrenal hormone replacement. However, i see people who have been diagnosed with "adrenal fatigue". This is not a true medical diagnosis. Most of these people have no adrenal problem at all. ...Read more
Dr has me on low dose hydrocortisone and suggested I check blood sugars after a month on pills. Today almost3 hrs after meal it was 81 is that normal?
Normal blood sugar: A fasting blood glucose of approximately 60-100, maybe up to 110 in some laboratories, is considered normal. After you eat, the level goes up above 100, and then it comes back down afterward . Most of the time, the level should stay in the range where yours is . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Prior to taking a daily dose of hydrocortisone of 20-30mg, my neck vessels would often become engorged and/or pound uncomfortably. What disease/condition (effectively treated w/ hc) could cause this?
Could cryofibrinogenemia cause shortness of breath and/or mild pulmonary hypertension that increases at times in intensity, improving overall with daily low-dose hydrocortisone?
Theoretically yes: Cryofibrinogenemia increases your risk of arterial and venous clots. Anything that does this, including clotting disorders, can increase your risk for pulmonary hypertension. And because cryofibrinogenemia is associated with inflammation, Hydrocortisone treatment would theoretically decrease inflammation and your risk for pulmonary hypertension. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Which peroxide?: Since I didn't know which peroxide you're using, I checked both benzoyl (http://www.drugs.com/cdi/benzoyl-peroxide-wash.html) & hydrogen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_peroxide). Luckily both appear to have no interaction w/hydrocortisone (http://www.drugs.com/mtm/hydrocortisone-topical.html).
