Question Anyone taking adrenal support medicine

I have heard that the low adrenals usually go along with low thyroid.

With my allergies being so bad, redness of my hands, I could very well have low adrenals.

Have read that taking Vitamin C will help the adrenals. Anyone tried this?

Lady50, I haven't tried it - yet - but am going to check it out since that is a concern -low adrenals - and my heart. Too much to check out.

Re: Anyone taking adrenal support medicine

I have been on low dose compounded cortisone since Sept. and it has helped me tremendously. I am in the process of tapering down with it now to see if my own adrenals have rested and will pick back up on their own now. It stopped the thyroid med roller coaster almost immediatley. Mine is a script from my doc that I get filled at a compounding pharmacy.

I also started on DHEA about a week ago as my levels were basically non-existant and I'm still tweaking with the dosage but it seems to be helping me as well. DHEA is produced my the adrenals normally.
