I have been taking T3 in addition to my T4 for about three months now, having seen a private endo. I initially started at 15mcg a day of T3 (in divided into 3 doses) and was told to reduce my T4 from 150mcg to 125mcg. I then increased my T3 to 20mcg and then 25mcg and reduced my T4 to 100mcg. I still didn't fell well, so the endo told me to increase the T3 to 50mcg a day divided into two doses and leave the T4 at 100mcg. I queried this via email with him as it was such a large jump. But he confirmed this was what he wanted. So I gradually increased to 50mcg a day but divided into 3 times a day as this worked better for me.
I feel better than on T4 alone but not amazing. But I do keep getting hot flushes or just feeling hot. Please can someone tell me - am I still under-medicated or over-medicated? Should I be reducing my T4 further, and if so, by how much?
