So good morning my dears. Just wanted to check in. For anyone who does not follow my posts, i had my endo agree upon cytomel for me and she prescribed 5mcg daily 1x. i am extremely sensitive to meds so i cut it into quarters and moved up to a quarter in the morning and then quarter in the afternoon. At first after my body adjusted i felt more energy, Almost 3 wks in i started gaining weight because she also dropped my synthroid dose back down. I seem to not tolerate the whole 5mcg at one time so i kept it at 2.5 mcg a day. So i had energy to exercise daily again but weight started coming again. Plus i constantly felt up and down like energy high and then a few hrs later crash before the next cytomel quarter. Head aches too started. I am wondering if i should just go back and put my synthroid dose back again where it was of alternating 50/75 mcg and stop the T3???? Wait and see what my labs say in a month or 6 wks then if i am not at 1 for tsh and still feeling crummy then maybe i need another increase in synthroid to a full 75. Honestly that is the only time i had a low TSH was on 75 mcg. She was reluctant to increase me a full 25mcg last time because i went hyper with the first endo. I feel now though that maybe that was only because I was sick for so long and unmedicated and he did not gradually work me up like I thought he should. Especially me being so sensitive. he probably should have gone 25, then 50, then 75. I thought T3 would be the answer for me but now not so sure. What do you all think? I am so sick of being not optimal!!!!
