When to stress dose?

When do you stress dose? Our doctor has me stress dose my teenage daughter (Addison's) if there is a fever or vomiting. But she has had episodes of trembling/severe fatigue at the start of school and illnesses with no fever. One doctor said do stress dose when ill even without fever, but our doctor and most info online says differently. ??? Please let me know what you have to do. Thanks!

Re: When to stress dose?

i would increase for a few days to see if it helps and if it doesn't then back down that's what my endo does. Cathy
