Mollie, my name is Steven. I have been taking hydrocortisone for 40 years and florinef for 27 years. I am 40 years old and have never taken predisone before. My doctors have never sais anything about this drug before. Maybe I could have saved a lot of sleepless nights. Do you have addison's disease? Are there any other meds you may be able to talk about? There are other diseases that I have, but one step at a time. Thanks for your comments.
