I'm lactose intolerant but want to start taking Cortef to raise my low cortisol in the morning so my thyroid meds will work again. I dont' want to pay to get it specially compounded, but don't want to upset my stomach. Just wondered how much lactose was really in it and if it bothered anyone who's lactose intolerant.
That would be a great question for a pharmacist - so why not ask one who would be able to tell you the amount of lactose in there and also the amount in the generic hydrocortisone pills. That way you will know if you are at risk.
