I need to inform my psychiatrist on Monday on how much liothyronine he can give me without becomeing thyroidtoxic.
My latest levels were on 200 mg levothyroxine and the tsh is 0.2
Free t4 is 25 pmol/l
And free t3 is 4.7 pmol/l
I'm a 36 year old man kg 107and had a total thyroidectomy.
So though I have no thyroid, the intention is im also being given liothyronine for treatment resistant depression, and I am not happy with being given 10micrograms of liothyronine and reducing levothyroxine by 25mg..... the question is what would you recommend the amounts (the ratios of liothyronine and levothyroxine) just to be healthy as a clued up consumer..... ignore the need for increased liothyronine need for the depression for now, I need to give the psychiatrists a soound starting point.
I would like this info as my psychiatrist is not a psychoneuroendocrineologist and is giving dosages of liothyronine according to an endocrinollogist who used to / still only belive s in t4 levothyroxine treatment! Your views are exceptionally valued and may help others to come! Thanks again. Wish me luck on Monday, . Michael.
