Hi, my mom (she’s 52) has been diagnosed with total adrenal insufficiency 6 months ago, so of course, her doctors put her immediately on hydrocortisone. We know that she has to be on steroids because her glands stopped working, but cortisone is causing her to be completely different person – almost. She can’t sleep at night at all, her mood changes rapidly and she says injection site hurts constantly. I’ve been reading this and other forums in hope to find out would switching her to prednisone help with the hydrocortisone side effects at all. If anyone had the experience with either cortisone or prednisone, we’d be grateful for any info,

Thanks in advance, May
