    The local pharmacist is a friend of mine and he showed me some generic hydrocortisone....I hear generic brands are not strong enough but then havent tried it myself yet.

    Too scared to keep changing brands when it comes to steroids

    Me hon
    I cannot afford Cortef which might explain why I don't feel I am on enough at 30mg even.
    But it is all I have ever experienced, never had the cortef with having to buy the armour also just not possible.
    I buy a 20mg tab from IP think the name starts with a W And a 5mg I recently started from the other IP which seems quite good but not really a marked difference in strength. Would probably be interesting for me to try Cortef proper and see if I felt better on it.
    Well there ya go eh?
    lotsa luv
