    I was wandering.. Those of you on hydrocortisone..

    Do you carry around a card or something saying that your on Steroids? Its just that (god forbid) something happen to anyone of you, and your hospitalised. If they are not aware of you being on steroids. it could seriously affect your health even be fatal....

    Touch wood that doesnt happen...... thumbup

    Yeah I read it as well that if you are on steroids then must carry a card so if there is an accident (Say bleeding occurs) then hospital/doctors will know that you are on steroids and treat you accordingly.

    I was a bit worried when I was traveling to Dubai last year that I may not be allowed in with cortef and melatonin in my bag as people in the past had been jailed for having melatonin........I carried it anyway as I thought I couldnt be hit by any other worst situation in my life to what I have now.

    Not carrying a card but guidelines says you must and it may be a good thing to do IMO. But the trouble is people treating themselves with cortef as NHS wont prescribe it at all.
