I must have needed it. I was on hydrocortisone for several years without any problem. I think it was the only drug or supplement that I’ve taken for which I’ve had a noticable positive reaction. Before taking it I was waking every couple of hours and staying awake for a long time. After taking it I slept decently, at least as far as staying asleep goes. That was not, of course, why it was prescribed.
I did have to wean off it veerrrryyyy slowly.
