    Addison crisis recovery

    Hi...new post-er here just trying to reach out. I have 12 diagnoses inclu lupus ankylosing spondylitis and addisons....at one time spent most of the time w specialists and on 19 scripts including daily maintenance of 10 10mg hydrocort and florinef 1 1/2. Went on my own w mainly supplements and weaned very slowly off meds inclu no thyroid and down to .1 florinef and 5mg steroids. In the past I have since lost lots weight and became stronger.
    Recently had crashing blood pressure at night again and heavy doses about 6d and ended up taking 145 yesterday to stay above 60s. I really don't want to end up in the hospital again. Anyone have suggestions? I've added licorice, re upped pantheno selinium...re lowered magnesium coc oil apple cider vinegar etc.

    Oh goodness! Well, i've read that using licorice can interfere with the fludro and will change how much you need. I would be very cautious about using supplements at this point until you are stable again. Just my 2 cents, as a newbie. I hope you feel better soon!!
