cortate tablets

Last year I had Hyperthyroidism and now I have been diagnosed with Sjogren's Syndrome. The Sjogren's is drying my eyes and mouth. I sometimes bleed rectally and vaginally (had both checked for other causes). I am on a gluten free diet to see if this will help symptoms. I have presently a mild iodine deficiency, low zinc at 3.4umol/d cortisol level is 76 nmol/d and my doctor has prescribed 6.25mg of Cortate at night. After reading the side effects I am too scared to take it. He says I need to give my adrenals a rest. Is there any other answer and is cortate safe to take?
