My endocrinologist agreed to let me start combination treatment. He told me to lower levothyroxine from 150mcg to 125mcg for a week, then commence t3 5mcg 2 tablets twice per day (20mcg) ... However, I did think this was a massive dose to start with so I started with 5mcg twice a day. Not going to lie, I feel dreadful after I take it, tired moody etc. I took it for a week then decided to introduce 10mcg for my morning dose... Well that made me even worse! Heart was racing etc! I do not want to give up and I know it takes a long time for the body to adapt (these were all the symptoms I had when I started levothyroxine) ... I think I was expecting a miracle in a bottle but even I'm doubting its powers and thinking of maybe just going back on levothyroxine. My vitamin d is treated, b12 treated, I had a short synacthen test and adrenal results were ok so why isn't it working for me?
Tired and bloody deflated!
