I just came back from the doctors, I am currently taking 4 grain of pig thyroid and I am self medicating with that along with 20mg of t3.
I am still experiencing symptoms of chronic fatigue, exhaustion, mental health issues, suicidal thoughts, dark thoughts, etc. I am also experiencing difficulty relating to people and participating in social activities because i am constantly bed ridden and exhausted.
I went to my doctor and told them that I feel that the pig thyroid medicine is not really helping me and my boyfriend doesnt want to carry on paying for it.
I asked my doctor if he could give me the equivalent dose which is 100mg of t3.
He looked up on his medical book and it said that the maximum dose of t3 is 60mg in order to achieve normal levels.
so he has prescribed me 60mg of t3 and said that is the max he can go.
is that true that max is 60mg on nhs? or can they go higher than that?
