I have Hashimotos. I have been on Liothyronine for about 2 months now and feel great (I had to have a slight tweeking to my Meds following a side effect on T3). I am taking the follow medication:
Levothyroxine 25mcg with Liothyronine 25 mcg in the morning and Levothyroxine 25 mcg in the evening one day, then Liothyronine 25 mcg in the morning (no Levothyroxine) and Levothyroxine 25 mcg in the evening the next day and so on alternating eachieve day.
My results from this are:
T4 = 7.2 (12 - 22)
TSH = 0.50 (0.30 - 4.2)
T3 = 8 (3.1 - 6.8)
Serum Cortisol = 273 (171 - 536)
My question is, even though the T4 is so low, why do I feel so well? Before I was prescribed Liothyronine I felt awful but my T4 and T3 were in "normal" range.
