Ok, so I've been experiencing some major hypo symptoms these past 3-4 months: hair loss, brittle nails, wrist and finger pain, and worst of it all - tens of thousands of skipped beats (palpitations) every day first thing in the morning.
I know all these symptoms vanish at FT3 level above 6 (reference range 3.10-7.10)
Three days ago I was finally put on Levo+T3.
My last labs on 50, 50, 75 mcg Levo were: TSH: 0.55, FT4 19.26 (12-22), FT3 4.90 (3.10-7.10).
Now I started taking 12.5 mcg T3 along with 25 Levo. I've been taking both of them for 3 days now and I have absolutely no improvement or abatement of symptoms...
Apparently my current dose of T3 is insufficient to make any difference. I take it at once in the morning, no splitting.
Since I have been googling it a lot, I was convinced that even a dose of 10 mcg would do wonders for me as it does for so many others.
Is it safe to take 25 mcg? Is this too high a dose?
At what dose T3 did you start feeling better?
Endo prescribed only 12.5 T3 but I still feel as awful as before starting taking T3.
