Hi Im new to the site,I have CFS,adrenal fatigue,IBS and hypothyroidism, It was suggested I take Prednisolone for my adrenal fatigue(have had adrenal stress index done ,result was very low) however got severe stomach aches on one 5mcg tablet daily,so cut down to half a tab still no good,have now cut down to quarter of a tab,still uncomfortable!!! I feel at a loss and terribly dissapointed,Ive had CFS for 20 yrs and heard that patients have had good results with Prednisolone or Cortef,but sadly my IBS has put the tin hat on it! I even have trouble taking vitamins,or digesting my food and need to take diestive enzymes.Ive gone dairy,gluten,corn and suger free to try and aleviate things too, is there any one out there who can tell me whether you can use a cortisol ceam instead to treat adrenal fatigue?? (therfore bypassing the gut) and if so, are there side affects and how long before some results are noticable?? hope someone out there can help, Best Wishes Thora
