I’m going back to see my Endo in a few weeks, need some advice again.
I have been on T3 ( Liothyroxine) for around 3 months, I was prescribed 60mcg per day with 50mcg of (Levothyroxine). I checked here first before I started taking it. I got some good advice about starting with small dose like half a tablet of T3 a day, I did this and built up the dose over 2 weeks. I got hyper symptoms and decided to lower the dose to half a tablet a day and now I’m on 20mcg per day . I was also having and allergic reaction, I had skin itching and rash. I started taking Antihistamines, I’ve been taking that everyday since.
I am feeling better than just on T4, I have more energy in the evening so thats good, also really good quality sleep (getting up in the morning still very hard) but main concern is I’m having heart palpitations, not all the time but 3 / 4 times per day. I’ve had It much worse than this before. I have put on some more weight, I’ve not changed my diet (low carb - high protein)
My questions are - do having heart palpitations do any long term damage to your heart?
What are my other alternatives to Liothyroxine / brands (he's going to take me of Liothyroxine I think)
Is there a way I can do a natural method or do without this medication.
I had a TT done for Graves in 2013
Hope you can help guys.xx
