So many people have troubles with levothyroxine. Why do they take it when what we really need is just t3. I am ignorant of this. And I would like to hear anybody's experience with t3 alone for Hashimoto's. Armour isn't doing it. Can't stand levothyroxine. Just started t3 alone and seem to feel tight in the throat. Maybe I need to up the dose faster. Am taking 3 doses of 12.5 mcg a day after 6 days on two doses. What do you think? I see my endo tomorrow. He loves Armour. It doesn't give me much energy or anything. Just no side effects compared to that miserable levothyroxine.
