Re: Addison's and Nausea
I have had adrenal insufficiency for over 4 years, but only been on hydrocortisone for 3 years. I finally started taking 30 mg over the last 3 months, so I suffered from low cortisol symptoms for way to long. Because of what I was reading from another forum, I thought that taking over 10mg at one time was not a good idea. Finally I started taking 20mg in the am, and the nausea is much better; the fatigue is still an issue, but I am working on it and taking more sea salt. I just began fluro 0.1mcg in October also.
I've yet to have follow up labs, but am calling my doctor this week to check out my electrolytes and aldosterone. I have Hashimoto's thyrioditis as well.
There is nothing worse than the nausea every morning, and seems so common with undertreatment.
Hope my experience is helpful.
