There are many different ways to support adrenal function. In fact, it all depends on "which way" your adrenals are currently expressing. Adrenal exhaustion/fatigue (hypoadrenal) requires a different approach than does Adrenal excitation (hyperadrenal).
If it was cortef which was suggested, it is likely that you were deemed hypoadrenal. No matter which way your adrenal glands express, I highly recommend Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction MBSR and love what these folks are doing to guide people into a relaxed state called parasympathetic.

As far as supplements go, I really like the following. They can all be found on my online dispensary.
Ortho•Adapt Vegan is a premier adaptogenic formula, reformulated for the needs of vegetarians. Includes pantethine (the “activated” form of pantothenic acid [vitamin B5]), and botanical adaptogens. Supports the body’s ability to respond to stress with balanced, proactive energy (“stage of resistance” or adaptogenic phase) rather than alarm or exhaustion.
