I've been taking T3 only for nearly 6 weeks now and am currently on 56.25mcg split over 3 doses a day. I'm not optimal yet, but am probably close. I've been following the Recovering With T3 protocol, and have over the last several month (when I was on NDT and also since taking T3) introduced various mineral and vitamins ... magnesium citrate, selenium, B12, iron, B complex, D3, K2, folate, and an adaptogen. I have found myself OK on magnesium, selenium and B12, but not so good on the others. I am low in iron and ferritin, D and folate and was low in B12 tho those levels have gone through the roof. I have high cortisol late night and early morning, but like I said feel awful when I take supplements to correct these. and recently diagnosed high blood pressure (since moving from Levo to alternative thyroid hormone treatment), so am taking BP meds now.
Every time I introduce some supplelents, I get nauseous, dizziness and pressure headaches. Everything I experience when taking the supplements I apparently need, goes against what I read. I actually feel worse instead of feeling better.
Just wondering if anyone has successfully moved to T3 only and felt better without additional supplements ... TIA
