Hello docapop2 & Marvell ; You two have made My day. Thank you docapop2 for asking that question, and thank you Marvell for your answer!
Marvell , may I ask, do you know if Hydro. can be bought in Pill , tab. , or Capsul form. I'm TRYING, to get off prednisone and not doing too well at it. Hydrocortisone appears as though it would be much easier to get out from under! Sacosam
