How long were/have you been on it?

Have you stopped taking it, and feel that your glands are healed?

What else did you take while on Cortef? (Supplements, vitamins)

What were you doing while on Cortef, as far goes as exercising? Were you taking it easy, or where you able to lift weights, and be active with sports?

I haven't felt so great since starting cortef, the symptom I usually get is nasuea(thats not spelled right) and I think its a symptom of the medication. Every now and then I get lightheaded but I take that as a sign to take more cortef. I have also noticed that I feel really sick if I don't take my medication first thing in the morning.

I have been on cortef since September and I am taking 5 mg in the morning and 15 in the afternoon. I am also on 2500mg of calicum (5x a day) and am also on vit d supplement but I can't remember the name of the medication right now.
