The guideline is typically not to go above 20mg/day. 10-5-2.5-2.5mg of hydrocortisone. You work your way up to that level, don't just jump into it. See how you react.
Then, after a month or two, you can then try to slowly wean off and see what kind of results you have. Taking high doses long term of glucorticosteroids has been shown over and over to affect health negatively. Just look at the old people and prednisone. Talking about being determintal to one's health over a period of time. It has likely lead to more health issues than resolving any using this stuff long term.
Nobody has studied this method and use of hydrocortisone. Most would go the traditional route and do a stim test, and other adrenal gland testing to determine if cortisol is an issue to begin with. Like a 4x saliva test
is a good/inexpensive start for people. Then, look into MRI of adrenal glands, other stim testing to determine adrenal function.
