I tried Isocort. I have talked to a lot of people at Yahoo chelation forums and thyroid/adrenal forums also. Isocort is a top brand and there are a fair number of people who get benefit from it. It, as well as any adrenal aid such as licorice or other adrenal extracts, made me extremely fatigues and much more depressed, as well as flared up some old tendonitis.

The only adrenal support I have been able to handle and get benefit from is oral hydrocortisone.

People with adrenal problems usually start off with the ginsengs, ashwaghanda, astragulus, and those kinds of things. Not many people get marked benefits from those. They made me worse actually. The next stop is adrenal cortex extracts, of which Isocort is one of the two top picks. People find more benefit than from the herbs. But even so, there are a good number of people who do not benefit until they get the real stuff...HC. Some take HC and Isocort together.

It think when a few of us have trouble with Isocort or adrenal extracts it is because it boosts other things besides just cortisol. Some of us just need the cortisol enhancement and leave everything else as it is. It is not unusual for people with adrenal weakness to be sensitive to certain foods or chemicals, of which pig glands are a common offender. Some people benefit from the wide spectrum of adrenal extract though versus the narrow focus on cortisol. Not me.

Isocort is a decent trial to either confirm something stronger is needed or to confirm that it is all that is needed. Don't underestimate the tiny pills, they are powerful.

One lady I know personally was not getting any benefit from Isocort at the normal dosage, but when her doctor had her increase the dose it made a difference for her. She takes it along with Siberian Ginseng and Astragulus combination, which is a good adrenal support formula, both anecdotally and scientifically.

I don't know the purpose of your inquiry about Isocort. If you have had a cortisol test and it is in the dumps, Isocort is a good way to go. If it feels bad, doesn't work, or feels good but not strong enough, you may need HC instead.
