Am I on enough cortef? Is it the best option?

Hello! I am currently on 30 mg cortef a day. 20 morning 10 at 4pm. I am also on 2 grains of naturethroid and testosterone replacement. I have been diagnosed as hypopituitary. Every day I wake up exhausted. Very few nights do I make it through without waking up at 4am or 6am. I am constantly having stomach issues, no appetite, no drive, energy, and I feel like a walking zombie. My legs are ice cold and stay that way even when laying on a heating pad. I'm 27 male, 5'10", 207 lbs. since being on cortef I've still continued to lose weight and honestly feel worse. I don't get out of bed. Is cortef the best option? Would prednisone or medrol be a better option? Thank you!
