Is HCG safe to take with Cortef?

Published: August 24, 2013

I am currently taking low dose Cortef (20mg), Adrenal Stress End and Synthroid 88mg. Is it OK to do HCG injections for weight loss while I'm on these medications? Your assistance is greatly appreciated.


It is safe and will not interfere with the effectiveness of the cortef, thyroid or Adrenal Stress End, and the HCG can help fibro pain as well, but you need to ask your HCG doctor if they are concerned with the meds interfering with the weight loss effect of the HCG.
