I swapped from taking 50mcg Thyroxine and 6.25mcg T3 am and afternoon to Erfa, thinking
it would be better for me. Initially my Dr said to take a half grain in the morning as well as the 50mcg
Thyroxine, to begin with I had some weird feelings going on, but my pressures seemed to improve and I wasn't too bad, still not right though. I also take Prednisone 10mg which I managed to reduce to 7.5mg, but when I tried to increase the Erfa to 1 grain, one half in the morning and one half at noon and cutting out the Thyroxine, I have gone downhill, I feel awful, I am very tired I just want to keep sleeping, my skin and nails are so dry, they weren't great before, but a little better than now.
I have had to increase my Prednisone back up as my pressures are now dropping like a stone, but I really want to come off it, I just don't know what to do, whether to stick with it or not, I feel quite poorly at the moment and I have had enough of feeling like this. Could it be that it just doesn't suit me? My Dr was concerned I would go hyperthyroid, which sometimes my pulse does go fast in the ninties, then it comes back down to the
low to mid 70's.
Could anyone advise me please? I would be very grateful for any input.
Hope this makes sense, I am struggling to type today.
