I would like to hear from those of you doing well on NATURETHROID?

I have just switched from ERFA Thyroid to Naturethroid. I was taking 2 and 1/4 grains of ERFA and have done a straight switch to Naturethroid 2 and 1/4 grains. I'm expecting good results so I am crossing all my swollen fingers and toes.

I would love to hear who is doing well on Naturethroid and how long do you think my adjustment period might be?

( i was not doing so well on ERFA recently so that's why I've switched)

Many thanks as ever

Naturethroid suits me. I was o.k. on Erfa but not 100%. I am on T3 at present, prescribed by GP , and am also good on the dose I am prescribed. He offered T3 as he obviously knew I wasn't getting any medication prescribed from the surgery.


I'm taking it, but I've not used anything else, so I'm probably not much help :-)


How are feeling HarryE and how much are you taking?


I started 4 weeks ago today, self treating after the usual disastrous GP and endo route. I have increased slowly and am on 1 1/2 grains per day at present so probably not at full dose yet. But I feel so much better it is truly amazing!


Oh I'm so pleased for you. You sound as though you're really moving in the right direction. If its any consolation my GP won't prescribe any NDT either. I wish you continued success.xx



The docs wouldn't prescribe anything, never mind NDT, because I'm, wait for it, NORMAL!! ;-)


I tried erfa a few years ago and didnT do so well. I swapped to Naturethroid and did much much better. I would have stayed on Naturethroid, only I got the same good results with Thiroyd and its much cheaper.
