Hi susiebow

I found that when I changed from levo to NDT/T3 and then T3 only that I increased a bit too much. I didn't feel I was overmedicated but when I lowered my dose a couple of times that's when I plateaued and have been on this dose now for a year and don't have problems.

As you know I take my dose once daily but everyone has to find their own solution, particularly if they feel overstimulated. I found T3 calmed my body/heart and the sensations/symptoms T4 caused.

As you started to have symptoms after feeling good maybe a slight reduction would help.



Susie, having intermittent good days is a good sign. Your body is doing better and the good days should become more frequent. I wouldn't increase dose until you feel settled on 45mcg.
