I have been taking 20mcg of T3 while alternating 125mls and 100mls of Liquid Thyroxine for two weeks and then tomorrow I am to change to 100 mls liquid and 40 Mcg T3 daily .on the lower dose of T3 I feel terrible , mostly weak and swimmy . Has any one else found zt3 added like this causing problems?

Also has anyone requested a period in Hospital in order that all relevant blood tests could be done and the correct dosage be properly discovered and there fore less guesswork on our parts . I am seriously thinking of asking my Dr to arrange this for me .I wonder what his reaction will be ?!

Blood tests will only measure what is in your blood not whether its working for you or not, I bet the doctor told you to take your T3 all in one go?

Splitting it throughout the day seems the best idea as T3 has a very short 'life'.
