Nicole H's Story...

I was diagnosed with Cushing's Syndrome and had the removal of my pituitary tumor in May of 2000. Since then, I have been recovering SLOWLY and have had various symptoms that doctors still cannot diagnose (dizzy spells, fainting, etc) I am currently taking 15mg of CorteF in the am and 5mg at night.

The doctor that I have recently switched to believes that I will be off of the medication completely in about 6 months (lowering it to this amount has not been easy) but I think since I have been on it for so long that that may not be feasible to be off of it and feeling well at the same time.
