My GP listened to me and has prescribed T3 as a trial- 20 mcg initially, however following g a couple of crashes in the afternoon , this was increased to 20mcg twice a day. Felt like a new woman After years of feeling awful. Went to follow up appt at Hosp to see endo who was not happy that GP had given T3- inspite of me feeling better. Without any blood results (he couldn't find them on computer) he said that reluctantly he would support me having T3 but only with a view to my eventually coming off this????? Said I was having far too much- and asked me to reduce the afternoon dose to half. This I have done and don't feel good early evening. Have got to go back in 10 weeks. My family feel I need to continue to see endo as be is more knowledgeable than GP but I am frightened they will stop the T3. Don't EVER want to go back to feeling like that. Have wasted too much of my life already. Sounds melodramatic but it really has made that much difference.
Also told him I had started taking d3 d magnesium- he thought that was good but said liquid form was better than tablets - didn't need to do test ????. Sorry to have gone on but I need reassurance.
