    Has anyone taken pregnelone pellets to help with adrenals??? I talked to a compounding pharmacist and she recommends to take 2 1/2 mg a day I sure hope this helps my fibro is really flaring and taking 1/2 Valium 2 day to combat pain along with tylenol and praying alot for a cure . My intregrative dr did not test me on my adrenals but said that fibro patients have poor adrenal function and I was told years ago my adrenals were burned out . Also I did order dr Wilson raw adrenal glanulars took 1 today was hard on my digestive anyone else have that??? I know when I start on the pregnelone pellets I will only do this 1 to see if it helps before I go back and try the adrenal glandulars. I'm so tired of people telling me that I just got to cope with the pain or I will end up in the physic ward.....

    My doctor has me taking one 50 mg. capsule of pregnenolone a day, but I don't think it's for adrenals - it's a precursor to other hormones, I just read it is suppsoed to help with stress and inflammation. To be honest, I don't notice any difference taking it, but it could be I'm just used to it. However, I would not take this in place of an adrenal glandular if my adrenals were weak. The adrenal glandular products helped me so much so quickly, I don't know of anything that can replace them.

    I've taken a couple of adrenal glandular products - two by Standard Process: Drenatrophin PMG and Drenamin, and one by Biotics: Cytozyme Ad. None of these were hard on my digestion, so you might want to try one of these. I do take them with food. And with each I noticed an increase in energy within a couple of days, if I took enough (which was often 2 to 3 times the recommended dose), if my fatigue was due to depleted adrenals.

    My ex is in the hospital in ICU with internal bleeding. He's had three pints of blood. He was taking too much Tylenol and the doc thinks it's the cause of the bleeding. They are still running tests but they found an ulcer. I don't know yet whether he will need surgery. It could be the Tylenol causing the digestive problems. It's very hard on the liver and stomach.

    Prayers going up for better health for you.

    Love, Mikie

    The FFC calls it the "memory hormone". Mine was low. I tried the supplements but didn't feel any different. I do take DHEA daily and am on lots of other hormones.

    I haven t taken any hormone so far but other that i have talked with they have.As for pregnelone i wouldn't recomend it since you can not predict what will do and which other hormone will effect.I think though that you have made the best choice taking Dr Wilson's Adrenal glandular since it has the raw materials to rebuild your adrenals and most important is that it is hormone free..So you will not have problem when you stop it.I am considering that particular glandular for my self too..
