Many of you have written posts describing tough times when starting NDT. I am full of admiration for your bravery. After three weeks of dovetailing in Nature Throid with an ever-decreasing dose of thyroxine ( schedules advised by people on this form -many thanks) I am feeling very much worse and starting to look back on the thyroxine days as days on contentment and freedom. My exact symptoms are: weakness, inability to walk 400 years to the post box, and palpitations. I'm now on half plus half plus quarter grains of the Nature a Throid, one and a quarter in total, spaced out at 4 am, 10 am and 5 pm. I've cut my thyroxine gradually to 125 mcg. Sorry, Glynis Rose, I could not suddenly go cold turkey on thyroxine! I was on 250 mcg.
Dr P has advised that I should take 5 to 7.5 mg Prednisolone for my adrenals, plus 6 Nutri Adrenal Extra, which I am doing.
Has anyone any beam of light to shed through the darkness, such as that I ought to persevere, it will get better in time? Did any of you feel weaker after trialling NDT for three weeks but then improve?
Thanks in advance!
