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

Hydrocortisone is available in tablet form.
