I am now taking levo and armour and looking to see if I could have some assistance please.
Having been prescribed Armour and been advised by my doc to take it along with my levo (175mcg levo plus 1/2 grain armoour), I did that for a few days and realised it wasnt right (having previously taken 200mcg levo and had swelling), I felt a bit hyper so I dropped my levo the equivalent of my armour (100mcg levo and 1/2 grain armour). I tried taking the 1/2 grain in the morning as I may have adrenal issues, to see if it would help. I did that for 2 weeks then upped to a full grain last Wed and lowered my levo to 75mcg. I still feel pretty rough, in fact probably slightly worse than I did on levo only, apart for 2 good days in the first week. Im having a terrible time getting going in the morning so was going to try taking my armour and levo at night tonight and see if that helps. I am due to stay on 1 grain for 4 weeks.
I just wondered if anyone can tell me if I am doing this correctly please? Would I be best to try and go to armour only? If so, should I try starting again on 1/2 grain only and working my way up? Any other advice? Have lost a wee bit faith in my doctor. I know this will take time so I dont expect it to be a miracle cure, just looking to see if I may be on the right track or at least giving myself the best chance of success.
The last set of results I had were pre armour, b12, vit d etc were all fine, TSH was way under 1, fT4 was top end of range and fT3 was slightly over range. Hence I realise my armour + levo dose is now only equivalent to 150mcg as I wondered if I was slightly high and advice from a lovely lady on here confirmed that I probably was.
