Hi I have a question regarding thyroid medication ! I have been taking 100 mg thyroxine and 3 grains of naturethroid for quite a number of years and have felt fine on this dose .. I cannot lose weight and My endo decided to try me on 125mg thyroxine and 10 mg t3 split into 2 doses during the day, to see if this would help me . I tried this for 2 months and I started to experience feeling tired and felt like I was pushing a tractor up a hill energy wise ! I had blood test and my t4 had dropped and my t3 was 5.1 . She said she changed meds so as she could see directly how much t3 I was actually getting as with the NDT she said wasn't exact measurements ! What I'm trying to say is I felt a lot better on the NDT and not on the t3/thyroxine combination. And I still haven't lost weight 🙄
Has anybody got any advice for me as to why I feel worse on the thyroxine/t3 combination ?
Thanks in advance
