    How likely is it to get glaucoma from cortisol stimulation?

    Hi all, I'm currently suffering from depression and adrenal insufficiency and my doctor recommended that I try cortisol stimulation using Cortef. I'm a little scared to try Cortef because he stated that one of the possible side effects of taking Cortef is developing glaucoma. He said if my family doesn't have a history of glaucoma then the chances of developing glaucoma are pretty low but I'm still pretty scared to try it. So, does anyone know what the chances of developing glaucoma are using hydrocortisone supplements like Cortef?
