Are u Hypothyroid with suppressed adrenals? Which meds first?

I am hypothyroid and since having Cushing's Syndrome and a left adrenalectomy, I have no right adrenal output and have to take a Hydrocortisone replacement.

My question is do I take the Thyroxine meds first or the Hydrocortisone? I need both before I can feel well enough to function. Can I take them together? Please help, can't find any answers online and my GP and Endo have been less than helpful. Thank you.

Hi no severe adrenal fatigue due to having undiagnosed hypothyroidism for years, I have been on on cortisol for about three years and I havnt been able to wean off successfully so I think I will always need it.
