Can Digestive Enzymes Be Taken With Cortef?
I am taking Cortef. My prescription was for 30 mg daily for adrenal insufficiency. I take it with meals because otherwise it is hard on my stomach. My question is whether or not it is safe for my stomach to also use digestive enzymes because I have digestion and assimilation issues. I see on usdoctor.com that both Cortef and pancreatic enzymes are recommended together. The formula I am considering has protease, amylase, cellulase, lipase, sucrase, maltase, galactosidase, bromelain, and trace minerals.

I vaguely remember reading somewhere that betaine hydrochloride is contra-indicated when taking Cortef. Anyone have a definitive source on this topic, and what have people experienced themselves? Thanks!

I looked up on a website...
I could not find betaine hydrochloride or digestive enzymes listed but it had other meds listed likes cat's claw and grapefruit (as cautions) so it appeared to be pretty comprehensive.
You also have to consider dosing - some people take cortef in higher doses and we only take replacement doses.

The only contra-indications were live-vaccines and mifepristrone.
