I have just had some new bloods done by Blue Horizon would really appreciate some advice on meds from all you very knowledgeable peeps.
I have just added in T3 to my T4 on endos advice and prescribed now by my GP have been taking 100mcg of T4 and 25mcg of T3 ( split into 2 X 12.5 mcg per day ) for about 6 weeks. I was previously taking 125 mcg T4 and feeling rough (weight gain, tired, muscle pain and weakness, brain fog ,hair dry and breaking ) I introduced T3 slowly 6.25 mcg for 2 weeks gradually increasing to present. Initially I felt a huge improvement but slowly my tiredness has returned and some brain fog and also itchy red eyes .Am I over medicated ?
I also supplement with Vit D, K2, B12, B complex, Selenium Gentle Iron and VitC and am gluten free for past 2 months.
I am wondering if I need to reduce T3 ( or T4 ) to maybe 20mcg as prescribed rather than 25 mcg I obtained myself prior to getting docs prescription just in case he refused!
Any advice much appreciated
