That's more or less what happened to me on thyroid S... I got more and more tired.

Eventually I decided I was better off on the synthetics so I took them again for a year. Then I decided to try again.... And found I do really well with both Thiroyd and Nature throid. But not at well with thyroid S and Erfa.

I know of someone else who has the same problem. We think its the fillers. Both thyroid S and Etfa are manufactured to have a longer shelf life and your body has to one more processing step to get to use them.

Maybe worth getting a test see where your levels Re and then perhaps consider another brand..... ( not erfa)...
