A couple of weeks ago I was thinking about how to improve my health. I'm on T3 only and have been taking it in three doses through the day.
I don't have much "get up and go"/motivation/desire to do things. I also struggle with concentration. Both with trying to do any of my study work (a part time course) or even watching a long TV programme.
I need to be able to concentrate if I'm going to get back to work. When I left my job due to ill health (back then was diagnosed depressed, but now I know I was hypo) having poor concentration, no matter how much I tried, made me unable to do enough work in the day. It's the same feeling as now.
I have found that I've been taking one of those batches that may be suspect. I've got one pot left and I'm not going to use it (so I have one I could send to be tested if that Yellow Card scheme need one). I've got more T3, but it's all in a bottle from Boots, so I don't know what batch it is. I wish I knew one way or the other.
Anyways, I'm taking 85mcg and I've tried taking it throughout the day like 35mcg, 25mcg, 25mcg and also waking early and taking some then going back to sleep.
I then tried taking the 85mcg all in the morning. It felt good until about 5 hours after I'd taken it and then I crashed and had to pull myself through the day on coffee and chocolate. I'm surprised that I didn't feel at all hyper in the morning.
Why don't people who take their T3 only in one go feel hyper after they take it?
I've noticed that people on T3 only seem to take larger doses, 100mcg + . I'm wondering what would happen if I took a larger dose in the morning. Maybe it would last me all day? But I don't want to take too much.
If you take your T3 only in one dose, whatever time of day, did you increase your dose compared to taking it throughout the day?
