Been prescribed a low dose of thyroxine but reluctant to take it because I didn't know what I was taking and what it would do for me despite have nearly all of the symptoms of Hypothyroidism. Have now realised it's inevitable but not before I am much better informed.
I am now reading through Dr Peatfield's book getting ready to deal with this. I have experienced, in the past very high stress levels (having a baby, studying, starting a new job, looking after older son AND moving house during the same period!). Ugh! My stress levels were so bad that I was prescribed sertraline which I took for about a year. Never again will I take anything without my own research and feeling reasonably secure in my understanding.
I have ordered some adrenal support as recommended in Dr Peatfield's book... before I start the thyroxine. Do you know if it's okay to take all the vitamins and supplements at the same time?
Also, I have lost so much of my hair. Is it likely I will lose more?
Thanks genuinely in advance. The advice here is incredible.
