Hi all - I'm a new member and desperate for advice and info on hashimoto medication. Just to give a little history I was diagnosed 6 months ago previous to having thyrotoxicosis for two months and being told I was just having panic attacks being a single mother 😡
Anyway been on 50 mcg levothyroxine since then. My worst symptoms were joint and muscle pain - hair falling out - dry skin on my face which looked dreadful and massive weight gain and water retention and terrible mood swings plus fatigue
They only checked tsh and apparantly that's fine however only my skin and hair loss has improved on levothyroxine ( I was Vit d deficient but that's ok now after supplements
A colleague who's a gp suggested I ask consultant for t3 and use half the amount of levo and use the same amount of liothyronine. 25/25
My consultant says as my tsh is ok I dint need anything changed.
Do depressed and fed up of being in pain and so fat - I really do feel depressed. The gp colleague isn't my gp so said she couldn't prescribe them but said j should try and push the consultant to try - she has had fab results from using both medications with a lot of her patients.
Does anyone know where I can buy liothyronine from so that I can at least TRY to get out of this misery?
