I post on here quite often. I'll keep this as short as I can.
I take 175mcg of Levothyroxine. My blood tests were as follows last month
Serum t4 20.3 (Top of the range was 23 If I remember correctly)
Serum free triiodothyronine 4.1 (top of range was 6 I think)
After trying T3 only and failing completely my GP spoke to endo who agreed 10mcg of T3 twice daily and cut T4 to 100mcg.
I took my first dose of T3 yesterday and a second dose this morning. Only 5mcg and I feel crap! I have a headache and my legs are feeling weak. I did not have these symptom on T4 only. I only took 150mcg of T4 last night in hopes to take another 5mcg this afternoon but now Im not so sure.
Im just throwing this out there. Could I just need an increase in my T4 to maybe 200mcg and scrap the T3?
My reason for asking for T3 in the first place was because I do get fatigued all the time, my skin is dry, my nails are crap, my hair falls out (not as much as it used to though, just a handful when I wash my hair etc)
My Vits are all well within range and I take a Vitamin B complex to help with a within range but slightly low folate reading.
