I'm a patient of Dr Peatfield and I've been taking Cynomel the past 5 years, with Nutri Thyroid plus Adrenals, plus B12 and folate. I'm also on HRT Femoston 1 mg. It's all been very successful, actually saved my life I think as I had terrible symptoms of hypo. I've been taking half a 25mcg tablet of Cynomel at 6.15 am for nearly all that time - I started off increasing the dose to 1 tablet but got hyper. Now for the past month, I've been getting headaches which last most of the day plus wobbly legs and sometimes slight nausea, so I reduced to quarter of a tablet. But still getting symptoms. I'm afraid to increase the dose in case they worsen. I've seen that some people take the Cynomel at night, so I took the quarter tab last night and the headache isn't so bad this morning. Problem is, I didn't sleep very well - and if I increase the dose I'm worried that will be worse.
Has anyone some thoughts and suggestions? I'm very worried what's been a wonderful change in my health will start to unravel.
