Hello. I would welcome advice on increasing my dose of Nature Throid. I've had to keep a basic background dose of thyroxine of 100mcg because my original dose was 250 mcg and I am used to high doses. When I tried to cut thyroxine totally and just take starting dose of NDT I was terribly ill, heart pounding out of chest, week, weeping, shaking after one day, very hypo. Having 100 mcg has worked better but I now feel very weak and hypo on 1 grain plus 1/2 grain later, p,us 1/2 grain later = 2 grains NDT plus 100 mcg thyroxine. Some of you commented earlier that this is a lot, yes, it is, and I realise that probably it's not possible to get answers to complex answers on a forum, even a great forum such as this one! My temps have dropped since starting NDT, used to be 36.7 about mid afternoon, now 36.4 or 36.3.
My adrenals are weak but supported via Dr P with 7.5 Prednisolone and 6 NAX. And one Swansons adrenal capsule.
People have varied experiences and I would so love to hear your comments, while expecting advice to be very diverse. My instinct is, my body is crying 'Give me more NDT!' But of course it could be saying the opposite. When you are as down as this, you can't distinguish between symptoms.
Above I meant 'answers to complex questions' but it won't let me correct!
Many thanks for reading, you must be sick of the sight of me!
