    If a patient is on prednisolone 5 mg daily and for whatever reason we want to switch to hydrocortisone ,what would be the dose ?
    I asked because given that hydrocortisone is short acting so I wonder if the equivalent dose is 20 mg OD , BID or TID

    I think the dose frequency will depend on the indication and then I would follow the literature, but HC is probably not an ideal replacement.

      I couldn't gain muscle mass for a long time. The doctor told me that this is hereditary. But I stubbornly stood my ground. I started going to the gym three times a week.

            Hello everyone. I would recommend everyone to not take steroids, because they are actually very dangerous, and have a lot of side effects.

              Ah!, just beat me to it. Reference was to a SARS comparison site. All these products are unlicensed untested for safety substances. they are sold as chemicals. I suspect most made in China and sold through US and Swiss companies.
              Problem is that the original Poisons rules were introduced to control Arsenic and Strychnine. This means that acts refer to named substances and it takes time for authorities to catch up. EG When penicillin was introduced it was classed as a poison as no regulations existed for antibiotics.
              The legislation needs extensive reform.
