anyone on hydrocortisone for adrenals?

my naturopath doctor started me on 5mg of hydrocortisone three times a day despite my normal cortisol saliva results. (despite high cortisol in am) he states it will help modulate my immune system, bring down the inflammation, and help me wake up better in the morning and go to bed at a reasonable time. does this sound about right? anyone out there take HC? thanks

Re: anyone on hydrocortisone for adrenals?

that doesn't really make sense to me, you are saying that your levels are high/normal but yet are being prescribed hydrocortizone? I would see an endocronologist this can put your adrenals to sleep and believe me you don't want that. Cathy

Re: anyone on hydrocortisone for adrenals?

this why it doesnt sound right to me? why would i be put on hydrocortisone if my
test results are normal. and im so scared of corticosteroids period. I dont want to gain weight and i understand you have to taper off steroids prior to stopping completely. I work as an rn and the dangers of steroids scare me. the reason the dr put me on it was because of my symptoms: not waking up refreshed,
having trouble falling asleep til 12-1am.
