I have been self medicating with T3 in addition to my prescribed levo after becoming fed up with doc telling me I'm normal. I reduced my levo my 50mcg 10 days before starting and the huge rush of hypo symptoms after only a week was completely debilitating. Luckily within 2 days of starting t4 my recovery was amazing. I was really surprised how quickly I felt the affects of the new meds and also how quickly I was affected by reducing the levo as I thought it stayed in the body for over a month.
I plan to keep going on t3 but find I get a bit of a buzz about 30 mins after taking a tablet. I do feel a lot better but still not 100%, I still seem to run out of energy very quickly. I would just like to know if anyone else finds they buzz or am I super sensitive to t3 and should maybe try NDT? I'm now taking 75mcg of t3 (split in 3 doses - 6am, 10am, 2pm). I haven't had lab done yet but have slowly increased until I felt better. Will I ever feel 100% or should I just feel luckily that these meds have given an improvement?
If I do try NDT can this be bought over the counter in Greece (where I get t3) and what is it called in Greece.
