On the 8 months I took this I regularly would suffer low cortisol symptoms. This was despite trying splitting dose twice, three or 4 times a day. Daily nausea and lightheadedness, and low BP. Resulting in regularly taking to bed and updosing. Switched back to Pred and everything settled down on equivalent dose
