My GP gave me T3 a week ago, after a veiled comment re a T3 trial from endo. I'd been on 150/175 levo previously. GP said to take 10mcg T3 twice a day, and said to stop levo. I had 2 days when my heart seemed a bit fast sometimes, but no side effects since. I assume this was because I still had levo in my system?? I've had huge exhaustion for 18 months.
This week I haven't felt 'normal', but definitely less bad!! But will the levo now be leaving my body? Do you think I'll need a higher dose of T3? How long does T3 take to work?
March test - TSH 0.04 (0.35-3.5) T3 4.2 (3.8-6.0) T4 21 (8.0-21.0)
My GP is phoning me tomorrow to discuss. Help please, not sure about doses etc!
