I am currently taking hydrocortisone, weaning off as I can. I learned the hard way that there are certain supplements that lower cortisol that I'm taking such as glutamine. Being on the HC, can I take any supplements that may lower cortisol at night without affecting the medication? It seems my Vit B and Vit C were also lowering it. Can I take these three in the evening when my levels should be lower then anyway?
B vitamins should not be taken before bed as they can keep you awake. If you want to lower cortisol at night then I would recommend ashwagandha before bed.
Vitamin C before bed is fine, but it is best to get vitamin C from natural sources rather than using synthetic ascorbic acid.
If you want to make coming off the HC easier then I recommend also taking Chinese licorice root in small doses through the day. The licorice root has a similar function to HC and prolongs the effects of HC. Unlike HC though licorice root helps to build up the adrenals rather than atrophy the adrenals like HC will.
