My tests showed my cortisol is way low, so is my DHEA. My Dr. said this is why I have anxiety. I usually sleep like a log because of my anti anxiety meds, well not last night. He assured me the cortisol (the prescription says hydrocortisone) would not cause me more anxiety. I just know I woke up several times last night and then when I woke up at 6 I had anxiety, which is normal for me. Does anyone have any experience with taking this? Does it help?? I'm sooooo tired of anxiety
