I shared these bloods last week with you - TSH <0.05, FT3 5.6. FT4 18 - 0n combi dose of 75 mcg Thyroxine and 5 mcg T3 at 7 a.m., 5 mcg T3 at 2 pm and another 5 mcg 10 p.m.
Felt much better on this dose a week, then slipped back to migraines, joint pain etc, for a few days, then picked up again last Wednesday.
Now feel as though the T3 is 'running out' on me. Have contacted the Onc who has told me to increase the morning dose to 10 mcg. Did that today and it made such a difference. Didn't get that sense of 'T3 hunger' - in fact, didn't have the pm dose until 4 pm and still felt ok then really.
Hoping that soon I'll be able to go onto 10 mcg twice a day - and hoping, too, that my bloods won't have gone crazy so he wants to step it down when I see him on 5 December.
Also saw Oncologist the day before yesterday. She told me that I was one of only two patients ahe'd had who can achieve a very suppressed TSH on such low doses. She said that the problem of Thyroxine overdose has been made worse by the fact that I'm not converting properly so it's been a double whammy.
She is now to going to monitor me for the Breast Cancer and leave the fine-tuning and mainenance of my thyroid meds.
Has anyone any experience of this sort of dosing?
Hoping for brighter days ahead and so thankful for everyone's support xx
