Following 3 years, spent hoping that my GP could help me manage my autoimmune thyroid symptoms, I have finally taken the plunge and obtained 100 x 25 mcg of Tiromel (T3) whilst on holiday in Turkey. They packet was available over the counter for the equivalent of just £2.57
My thyroxine dose was increased early this year from 125mcg - 150mcg, I have dropped my dose back down to 125mcg and have started taking 25mcg of T3 with my Thyroxine, first thing in the morning, at least 1hr before food and drink etc.
I'm not feeling any adverse effects of note, after just over 2 weeks on this combination. I do feel less exhausted/tired, digestive issues appear to getting better and I'm beginning to feel as if a range of symptoms are improving slightly/slowly.
I would appreciate feedback from anybody with experience of self medicating in this way, that can help highlight any pros and cons, that I should be aware of.
