> If you indeed have high cortisol (do you have any symptoms of Cushings?), you would be referred to an endocrinologist. This is not a situation that a primary care physician would treat. Specialists in Cushings know what drugs to use and you'd best discuss the options with them. I have a good friend with Cushings and went to several appointments with her to help her remember what happened and sort through her options. I doubt you and people on this list are more knowledgable about Cushings than a specialist would be. AND, nobody is going to prescribe anti-cortisol drugs without testing for excess cortisol, a process that takes numerous 48-hour urine and saliva tests. (This is because cortisol rises and falls constantly, so measuring it at one point in time doesn't tell you anything.)
