In treating adrenal insufficiency is cortif preferred over prednison?
Did you mean prednisone and cortef?
They are both glucocorticoids. Cortef is a brand of hydrocortisone. Generally hydrocortisone is short acting and prednisone is intermediate acting,
Treatment of adrenal insufficiency involves replacing, or substituting, the hormones that the adrenal glands are not making. Cortisol is replaced with a synthetic glucocorticoid such as hydrocortisone, prednisone, or dexamethasone, taken orally once to three times each day, depending on which medication is chosen.
