Unhappy Primary Addison's and aldestorone

I'm having a real problem with my meds. I have Primary Addison's, along with hypothyroid, Animia, type 11 Diabeties. My Problem is this: I take Prednisone, and Florinef for the Addison's. I have Medicare, but the part d insurance will only pay so much. At the moment, I have no money of any kind, and will be out of Florinef in a week. What do I do until the end of the month? I've had Addison's for 40 yrs, but have never come upon this situation. I'm really more than a little scared. Has anyone been in this situation before? What did you do? I'n not looking for money,just suggestions.

Re: Primary Addison's and aldestorone

i've stretched it on meds a few times. do not recomend it at but if you had one you could stretch fluidro is the one. start by halfing it. increase salt intake, vitamin c if you have got it several times a day. you may be able to go a couple of weeks like that with few problems. worked couple times for me . but i really suggest selling your not being smart just saying not taking meds is bad with addisons.
