I just got my labs back after 5 weeks of switching back to Nature Throid 97.5mg:
Free T4: .83
Free T3: 2.32
I tried a combo of Tirosint and Cytomel for 4 weeks before that. Labs at that time were:
Free T4: 1.2
Free T3: 2.86
The only plus from being on this combo was that my hair started growing back. I gained 16 pounds. I was hungry all the time, but I didn't eat that much more. I was also very angry (not like myself). I'm thinking these were hyper symptoms? Or maybe just too much too fast.
So now...I have to decide what to do. Endo says that I respond better to a higher t4, so he's willing to let me stay on Nature Throid, but moving me back down to 1 grain (60mg) and adding some T4 (synthroid). He's willing to keep me at the same "dose." He liked that my TSH was improving. How much t4 should I be on? Is this a good idea?
