Ive had an underactive thyroid since the age of 9, its been under control until the past 3 years. I was taking 175mg per day, the dr said i was been overtreated so dropped my dose to 150, i felt normal on that dose but had my usual yearly bloods done and was told i need to drop my dose to 125mg. I started to feel tired, energyless, and generally unwell, i went back to my dr and requested to see a consultant who specialises in thyroid problems. I eventually seen a endocrinologist who advised i may need to drop my dose even more !! My recent blood results are T4 16.3 T3 3.2 and TSH 0.01 the consultant has now started me on T3 medication 20mg per day and dropped my T4 treatment to 100mg. I have been on this medication for 1 week now and i feel like a walking zombi, my consultant said that i should take my tablets in the morning after i have my morning coffee, i have read numerous articles saying you should not take your medication in the morning or not after drinking coffee. I would appreciate any advise regarding my thyroid levels, and also when i should be taking my medication.
Many many thanks
