I was diagnosed with Hashimotos in 2007. After and (unnecessary) reduction in NDT, which caused an episode of tachycardia and hypertension (which landed me in A&E) I was short termly put on low dose Beta Blockers with good effect. I recently tried to come off the Beta Blockers (he only gave me 2 months worth) as advised by my GP (though no advice given as to how to do this). The result after 3 days was palpitations, anxiety and tachycardia (poss hypertension but I'm away from home so I don't know) which sent me running back to them again. I have recently increased my NDT (by half a grain) to 3 grains after advice on here as I have had changes in my results for the past 6 months, after a necessary increase in HRT, having been well for the last 7 years prior to this. Should I wait until I see improvements in my Thyroid results before trying to come of BB's? Does anyone have experience of a successful way of doing this please? Thanks in anticipation for any help, Deborah
