I was moved from NDT to Cynomel late December 2012 having been told I can't convert. I steadily built up to 3.5 tabs (87.5mcg) by April & have stayed at this dose as since May I have been extremely ill with concurrent infections- an 8 week vicious sore throat, & an unexpected asthma attack (A&E involved). Two prescriptions of prednisolone have finally helped me.
I am experiencing horrible palpitations with pulse rates of 88- 106. I know that doctors begin to worry @ 140+ but my previously normal rate was around 65. Looking back in my notes pre-illness, I see that I was experiencing a pulse rate of 88 on average. According to my carer, I would experience mild palps but then it settled down for a few days before the next mild episode.
Feeling so poorly as I do I am reducing my t3 dose to 62.5mcgs - 1 x 25 mcg tab am, 1 x 0.5mcg lunchtime, 1 x 0.5mcg but is this wise?
I am so confused. Try as I may, I still don't understand Rt3 and should I be worrying about that?
