Addison dogs do not need a special diet but all dogs need a high quality protein in their food. Your vet might have wanted you to change for that reason.
If money is really tight then I think that Chappie dried food is a good compromise. Lots of vets recommend it and it was recommended to me by the referral practice that treated Willow for her Addisons crisis.

Take a look at this website for alternatives - http://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/
