Treatment of Addison's disease is usually with replacement corticosteroids. This will control the symptoms of this disease. However, you will usually need to take these drugs for life. People often receive a combination of glucocorticoids (cortisone or hydrocortisone) and mineralocorticoids (fludrocortisone).
Your doctor will be able to prescribe these for her.
I too have addisons and am going thru menopause. Search the web for wilson's adrenal fatigue syndrome. James Wilson developed a combination of ingredients for relief of these symptoms and was recommended by my dr. Or if you have a kohls pharmacy that does compounding they make an adrenal support tablet you can get over the counter. Also recommend the book, "adrenal fatigue, the 21 st century stress syndrome" by james wilson, gives great insight into disease and supplements and diet changes that really do help with the symptoms. Good luck.
I hope by now that your wife has been to a doctor and has received the right treatment and medicines to keep her addisons in check. It can change very fast. It also effects your activities and also your mental attitudes and thinking and acting. You can get overwelmed both physically and mentally very easy. Addisons also can cause other problems and has made my body have numerous related and unrelated problems including Fibromyalgia, connective tissue disease, hypothyroidism, less hormones, both types of artritis and more and I take 14 to 15 different medications during the day. What a life. Try to be good to your self with diet and physical activities, and be ware of what you have and let everyone know how to treat you if you get into problems.
