good morning. So I have been on T3 (synthetic) about 3 months. I had my dr add generic Cytomel to my brand name Synthroid. Brain fog immediately gone and i have energy to exercise more now. I still cannot lose weight and i still have constipation once in awhile, diet is good and should not have that issue. Plus I experience a crash in the late afternoon to where i am falling asleep wherever i am by 8 pm. I believe my body is fully adjusted to the meds now. I began taking a quarter and then half twice daily because i am super sensitive. Once i started taking the whole 5 mcg in the morning i noticed how good i felt in the morning compared to the half a cytomel or none at all, but now this later day is an issue. I am on the fence. I either try to ask dr for 75 synthroid daily instead of alternating 50/75 every other day or i ask for 2 pills of cytomel a day to take one in the afternoon. What do you all think? And if i did the 2nd pill of cytomel a day do i need to reduce the synthroid? I doubt she will do either one since she said i am optimal last time with my TSH being .99! I really think i am still not on my optimal dose yet though. I am monitoring BP and heart rate.... everything fine. No hyper symptoms like she said i would get by adding 5mcg to my 50 synthroid lol. I kept my 50/75 dose and added the T3 and I still did not go hyper as i thought! Clutter, Greygoose and anyone else who is very knowledgeable. Advice please
