I started on Thiroyd from Thailand a few days ago. Feeling fine, air hunger gone and sleeping better. I was on 50mcg levothyroxine and now I take 25mcg levothyroxine and half a grain Thiroyd an hour before breakfast. It was recommended to take one grain but I began to get hypo symtoms around 1pm. I read somewhere its best to spread the dosage. But I am also feeling a bit hypo late afternoon after taking two lots of half grains. I don't want to overdose but I wonder if its ok to take another half dose late afternoon which would give me in total 25mcg levothyroxine and 1.5 grains instead of my 50mcg levothyroxine. I wonder if Thiroyd is weaker than levothyroxine and gets used up faster. I also notice that it has 60mg, that is mg and not mcg on the tub of Thiroyd, is this correct as levo is in mcg? I also have a question regarding what to do if one becomes ill and is sick, what happens to the thiroyd taking? I would have thought that one would become very hypothyroid. Best to know what to do just in case get the flu or something this winter? I do feel a lot better now I am on NDT, just a few niggles but nothing in comparison to how I was even a week ago. I am also seeing a new doctor on Tuesday. I also have antibodies of 198.
