    I highly recommend to those of you on hydrocortisone or possibly even thyroid replacement or other hormones like aldosterone to take it sublingually.

    I find the Cortef to be 10 times more effective (subjectively speaking) if I take it sublingually. Sometimes I literally do not even feel the hydrocortisone hit if I take it regularly. My endo says not to take it sublingually, but me and my friend do and if we didn't we probably wouldn't get out of bed.

    I take HC sublingually too.

    Just make sure to rinse the mouth out well or use a mouthwash like Listerine afterwards.

    It works much better for me this way. I've just recently started taking Florinef subling and will be curious to see if it allows me to reduce the dose.

    Make sure too take sea salt daily with Florinef.

    Also I have made a very interesting observation regarding sublingual dhea... Seems to work much better. I think the metabolites are different sublingually dosed.

    Another question - How long did it take for you to feel the effects of the Picamillon on producing GABA?
