I am using Cortisone (Meticorten) since 1979, because of a brain tumour that I had, which destroyed my pituatiry gland. What extra suppliments should I take because of the side effect of Cortisone

Louis, there is nothing specific you can take to counter act the side effects. The best would be to adjust the dosage until the effects are optimal and the side effects minimal. You can take medicine for specific problems as and if they arise. Good luck.
