Well, I went to my Indiana doctor on Friday and she wants me to go up to five Nature Thyroid. I am currently taking three now. She also told me to get some iron supplements as I am a little low on my iron. She also gave me some iodine and told me how vital that is to take. She said to not stop taking it.
I take my Nature Thyroid in the morning when I first wake up. Should I take the iron and iodine at night before bed to separate it?
I told her how the doctor had told me to come off my Nature Thyroid. She said, "Why would they ask you to come off of it when you are low?" I told her, "That's what I thought, too." I don't get why one says to come off of it and another tells me to raise my dose. I don't understand. All I know is my Indiana doctor had me feeling my best and I have to go with what makes me feel better. I am not leveled yet and I am going to drop my prescription off to get filled and start taking four and then raise to five in a few weeks. I am hoping that my symtoms that have been occurring will go away soon. She told me that she has been on her thyroid medicine for her entire life and I will be, too, and to never come off my medicine again. She told me I should have called her when I didn't get my medicine through the mail. She said she had a lot of problems with the canadian pharmacy and told me she no longer uses them. Let it be a lesson to me to ever go without again. I have paid dearly and I still am as I'm struggling to get back where I was. Hopefully, I will get there soon.
Have a GREAT day you guys!!!! Debber :))
