What tests are recommended to check CORTISOL level

Hi. Wondered what tests (blood and urine) were good to test cortisol levels, esp. for those who have lived with ongoing depression (sometimes in partial remission) for years?

My current psychiatrist said she was not getting much information in that area from the psychiatric 'community'. This came up because I asked for the names of the specific tests for measuring said levels of cortisol. Tests that would work w/ the HPA axis. She agreed that dexamethazone suppression tests are pretty much out of favor (they used to be widely used, at least in the '80s).

Anyone have any ideas?
