What is the difference between Solu Cortef and Hydrocortisone?
Thanks that makes alot of sense now to why my hands and feet are more puffy because of too much water in me. Asked by Erwin Primrose 1 year ago.

Solu-Cortef, is a water soluble, injectable hydro-cortisone. Solu-Cortef is just a brand name. Answered by Ed Degrenier 1 year ago.

I see them slightly different but feel it may almost be semantics. Seems in my Spiritual life the mean the same. Faith is not hope to me, hope is hope. Faith is that I know all is working toward my coming to Remembrance no matter what my Human assessments may be or what it feels like. In my Human relationships, I can have a relationship where my "trust" has been broken, & still ultimately have faith in that person knowing within they are the same as me. Trust very often is a judgment based on past experience, theirs & mine. Faith goes much deeper, it has nothing to do with the intellect but comes from the Wisdom of the Heart. A simple gift given to another, "I have complete faith in you" will very often help to release the bonds of past mistakes. I feel I may not have explained this well, the difference is subtle. But this was a great Q! You had me pondering this for 2 days. Many Blessings! Answered by Janiece Liapis 1 year ago.

I work in a pharmacy and a customer has bought a lot of solu-cortef for her son who recently passed away. Is there anywhere she can legally resale this unopened drug? Asked by Windy Kunicki 1 year ago.

nope, not in the US anyway. Even unopened the drug is considered contaminated, and even if it weren't she hasn't a pharmacists license which is also required to sell prescription drugs.

I have been taking high doses (100mg+) of Prednisone of the past 2 months and have been tapered down to 60 mg. I have the typical moon face and bloating as well as lots of crazy adrenal stuff (hot/cold, tired/awake, happy/sad, etc) and would like to reduce these symptoms. Can I do anything with diet (drink tons of water, take vitamins, etc) to reduce these side effects? How long after I get down to a better dose (let's say 30 mg daily) will I start to look and feel more normal? Answered by Shonta Lammi 1 year ago.

Wow! Sorry you have to take such a high dosage of Prednisone and that you are having the Cushing's syndrome. I had a pituitary tumor and my adrenals removed in 1971 so I have been taking 20 mgs of HC split into 3 doses dailey and I take a little extra when I am feeling poorly. I will have to take it dailey and I carry an emergency shot of solu-cortef all the time and wear a Medical Alert bracelet because when I get sick someone will know I am not drunk or acting crazy, but having an adrenal insufficiency crisis. I am a little overweight, but not too bad. Try and stay as active as you can. Do you take florinef also? I don't seem to need it. Have you had your electrolytes checked lately? How is your sodium/potassium balance? It wouldn't hurt to get a copy of your blood tests and keep them in a notebook to see if something might be a little off. I am going to star your question so I can see how you are doing. I am pretty sure when you get the prednisone down to 30 mgs, and keep active, doing what you are already doing you will start feeling better...Yep, I do have the hot/cold, happy/sad, and bloating too, but I am so much better when the days are longer, we go camping and I am active. Wishing you the very best...continue all the drinking of water and vitamins...make sure you take a calcium magnesium supplemnet. I didn't know I should have started with those vitamins until many years later and now I have osteoporosis. You are on the right track...keep up the good work. I am thankful I have lived since 1971 and been able to raise a family, work full time and enjoy camping and hiking. Hugs and well wishes. *granny* Patti K in Oregon Answered by Lia Martelle 1 year ago.

I was also on Prednisone a few years back and i know EXACTLY where you are coming from. The moon face is an annoyance and the adrenal stuff is definately a nuisance too i remember it clearly. But your doctor will slowly ween you off the medicine and with the reduced dosage should come slight changes in your face shape and your mood swings, etc. Your appetite will also go down slightly, b/c in my personal experience while on the medication I was constantly ravenous! But i hope your soon off the meds and into a happy healthy life! Answered by Tanisha Santell 1 year ago.

Well, ive took predisone for only one day and had the side effects for more than 2 weeks and that was only ONE DAY. Make sure you do not take any meds during your side effects.

Thanks that makes alot of sense now to why my hands and feet are more puffy because of too much water in me. Asked by Kam Mavins 1 year ago.

Solu-Cortef, is a water soluble, injectable hydro-cortisone. Solu-Cortef is just a brand name. Answered by Kenneth Sturz 1 year ago.

I see them slightly different but feel it may almost be semantics. Seems in my Spiritual life the mean the same. Faith is not hope to me, hope is hope. Faith is that I know all is working toward my coming to Remembrance no matter what my Human assessments may be or what it feels like. In my Human relationships, I can have a relationship where my "trust" has been broken, & still ultimately have faith in that person knowing within they are the same as me. Trust very often is a judgment based on past experience, theirs & mine. Faith goes much deeper, it has nothing to do with the intellect but comes from the Wisdom of the Heart. A simple gift given to another, "I have complete faith in you" will very often help to release the bonds of past mistakes. I feel I may not have explained this well, the difference is subtle. But this was a great Q! You had me pondering this for 2 days. Many Blessings! Answered by Selena Seymoure 1 year ago.


Resalling Solu-Cortef?
I work in a pharmacy and a customer has bought a lot of solu-cortef for her son who recently passed away. Is there anywhere she can legally resale this unopened drug? Asked by Claire Vinroe 1 year ago.

nope, not in the US anyway. Even unopened the drug is considered contaminated, and even if it weren't she hasn't a pharmacists license which is also required to sell prescription drugs. Not to mention the little necessity of needing a prescription from a doctor to possess the medication legally. NO, she is better off throwing it away. Answered by Collin Mohring 1 year ago.

The patient had a diagnosis of addisons disease which is caused by decreased functioning of the adrenal cortex?
a) glucotrol b) humulin c) solu-cortef d) pitressin Asked by Marty Leaming 1 year ago.

The question is missing the second part. The question is not really a question but a statement. The choices are medications. Unless one of them destroys the adrenal gland, the response is C. The only one used for adrenals is c) solu-cortef but that is only for emergency purposes, not on a daily basis. Answered by Chelsea Arzabala 1 year ago.

The patient had a diagnosis of Addison's disease, which is caused by decreased functioning of the adrenal cortex. Which of the following medications may have been prescribed? a. Glucotrol b. Humulin c. Solu-Cortef d. Pitressin Asked by Wilma Holtry 1 year ago.

The answer is letter B. Patient with Addison's disease has insufficient levels of Cortisol - a class of hormones called glucocorticoids.

I have been taking high doses (100mg+) of Prednisone of the past 2 months and have been tapered down to 60 mg. I have the typical moon face and bloating as well as lots of crazy adrenal stuff (hot/cold, tired/awake, happy/sad, etc) and would like to reduce these symptoms. Can I do anything with diet (drink tons of water, take vitamins, etc) to reduce these side effects? How long after I get down to a better dose (let's say 30 mg daily) will I start to look and feel more normal? Answered by Fumiko Ocon 1 year ago.

Wow! Sorry you have to take such a high dosage of Prednisone and that you are having the Cushing's syndrome. I had a pituitary tumor and my adrenals removed in 1971 so I have been taking 20 mgs of HC split into 3 doses dailey and I take a little extra when I am feeling poorly. I will have to take it dailey and I carry an emergency shot of solu-cortef all the time and wear a Medical Alert bracelet because when I get sick someone will know I am not drunk or acting crazy, but having an adrenal insufficiency crisis. I am a little overweight, but not too bad. Try and stay as active as you can. Do you take florinef also? I don't seem to need it. Have you had your electrolytes checked lately? How is your sodium/potassium balance? It wouldn't hurt to get a copy of your blood tests and keep them in a notebook to see if something might be a little off. I am going to star your question so I can see how you are doing. I am pretty sure when you get the prednisone down to 30 mgs, and keep active, doing what you are already doing you will start feeling better...Yep, I do have the hot/cold, happy/sad, and bloating too, but I am so much better when the days are longer, we go camping and I am active. Wishing you the very best...continue all the drinking of water and vitamins...make sure you take a calcium magnesium supplemnet. I didn't know I should have started with those vitamins until many years later and now I have osteoporosis. You are on the right track...keep up the good work. I am thankful I have lived since 1971 and been able to raise a family, work full time and enjoy camping and hiking. Hugs and well wishes. *granny* Patti K in Oregon Answered by Shelton Durr 1 year ago.

I was also on Prednisone a few years back and i know EXACTLY where you are coming from. The moon face is an annoyance and the adrenal stuff is definately a nuisance too i remember it clearly. But your doctor will slowly ween you off the medicine and with the reduced dosage should come slight changes in your face shape and your mood swings, etc. Your appetite will also go down slightly, b/c in my personal experience while on the medication I was constantly ravenous! But i hope your soon off the meds and into a happy healthy life! Answered by Yoko Hafemeister 1 year ago.

Well, ive took predisone for only one day and had the side effects for more than 2 weeks and that was only ONE DAY. Make sure you do not take any meds during your side effects. Make sure you drink lots of water to reduce your side effects and eat a 3 course meal everyday. Answered by Art Mathiesen 1 year ago.
