hi everyone, i was just wondering what cortisol replacement most people are on and what works the best for them. I'm on 10mg of prednisone and i'm trying to run cross country. At the begining i was doing ok, but lately i've been having very low energy and basic low cortisol symptoms. It seems like i have a very long recovery and when i go back to run again, i repeate the cycle of run a few days, feel sick a week or more, run a few days (if i'm lucky), and so on.
I'm starting to think that Hydrocortisone would be best or a mix between the 2. Just please reply, any info helps. Also if there's any athletes out there, i'd like to know how you manage everything.
btw: my endo is a strong believer in prednisone, but from my research HC is best expecially for athletes.
