here I am again, with more troubles. Hope someone can offer some advice please.
Having 'failed' a T3 only trial of 2 months which made me very ill (felt hyper all the time and could only gt my dose up to 18.5mcg split of Cynomel) last week I gave up and my endo thought we should try a combination of Levo and Cynomel. He put me on 50mcg Levo plus 6.25 ofT3 per day and I started last Friday night. I decided to take half the levo at bedtime and the rest on awakening with the T3.
For the first few days I felt tired after lunch but much better than on the T3 only, more calm, less anxious. Wed and yesterday I felt that I had turned a corner at last and hooray this could work. Ha ha.. Last night I wanted to keep eating, didnt sleep at all well, felt wired and tired, and this morning (took my meds as usual) but all day have felt overmedicated/hyper - pulse rate up, heart palps, shaky, hungry, brain fog, blurred vision etc. I still feel rubbish and shaky now and sick.
I weigh 7.5 stone (47 kilos) - is the dose too much for my weight. I am 58. Which do I cut down - the Levo, or T3 or both ?
I am intending to try DHEA asap but am worried to start it now. I am trying to support my adrenals with herbs as cant take glandulars.
Thanks in advance
