Finally got to see my specialist who noticed straight away I was very unwell. He said that my body does not absorb levothroxine so had started me on a low dose of Liothyronine 5mcg for 2 weeks then after that to increase to 10mcgs for 8 weeks until he can see me next. Says he has to increase slowly as he doesn't want my body going into shock. Tried getting my script yesterday but no chemist here stocks it needs to be ordered in especially?? . Specialist said he only treats with this drug if it's really needed so obvs I'm a bit worried. What are people's experiences with this drug as he is taking me off levo completely and only treating me with Liothyronine. He also said my body is not converting any of the levo at all. What I want to know is how has it helped other people and their symptoms as in hair loss, weight gain etc...did it clear up their symptoms. Sorry for the long msg lol I'm just a bit of a worrier xx
