Hi i was taking eltroxin for over 10 years, felt grand, never really anything else but "grand"! eventually i got fed up of being just Grand (lol), and i started researching armour.
after trying to convince my doctor to prescribe it to me instead of eltroxin, for nearly 2 years, he eventually caved, so to cut a long story short, i switched to armour 8 weeks ago
Was originally prescribed 60mg of armour twice a day! i lerned after about 10 days that that was NOT the way to go, i reduced to 120mg every 3 days, then down to 60mg every 3 days, then had to reduce to 30mg daily, and eventually settled at 15mg daily
I feel great now, but it has been a rollercoaster, and i did not want to go to doc and he change me back to eltroxin, so i persevered and read this site a LOT for guidance.
Anyway i recently went to doc for bloods, i explained to him that it has been a rollercoaster time, but that right now i feel that i am on the right road. mentally i feel better than i have in years i have more energy, and feel great. so this morning the nurse rang me said i needed to see doc ASAP as my bloods were as she put it "off the wall!" i told her i had an appointment to see him monday, she said it really cant wait that my TSH was 147! she wouldnt give me any other info on T3 etc, would have to see doc for that. my dilemma is that i was going to up the armour today to 30mg as i felt ready, so do i still up my armour and go my symptoms OR freak out like the nurse did and take some eltroxin to bump me up??
sorry its soooo long...... Please help xx
