After a diagnosis of 'exhausted' adrenal glands, I've been on NAX (4-6 tablets) for 2 years and T3 (20 micrograms) for 18 months.
I feel generally ok and am wondering if I should start coming off the drugs. How long does someone normally take these for? And how does one come off?
I've recently reduced the dosages to 2 NAX and a third of a T3 tablet (6.6 micrograms roughly). However, when i had my last menstrual period I got really sick with gastroenteristis and the flu in the same week....(Dr P always said getting sick at period times is a sure sign of adrenal weakness). I've also been enjoying a 6 month holiday which has meant very little stress. I'll be starting a new job next week and may ha r more stress.
Also, what tests should I get to check if the NAX and T3 have worked or not?
I've only had one appointment with Dr P right at the beginning due to the expense (and living overseas except for holiday visits). I'm back at Christmas and wondering if I should do another ASI and another thyroid test and if this would give results of how the drugs are working.
Any ideas/experiences would be appreciated.
