Primary Addisons Disease

Does anyone else with Primary Addisons have normal BP before taking any morning Medication
I have had  Primary Addisons for 7 years now and in the last 2  years I have normal BP even before I take my morning Meds. My BP before meds is 111/74 and on standing it goes to 125/80 .. So my blood pressure isnt low as most Addisons patients are, I dont take fludrocortisone any more as my BP went really high, I just take 12.5mg Hydrocortisone a day. Even if I take 10mg Hydrocortisone at 8am by 5.30pm before my 2.5mg dose my BP is 127/80 then on standing 140/94
