Hi all, in desperation I have began self medicating t3. (Had tt after graves 12yrs ago, been fine on levo for years until became anaemic dec 2015, then everything was on the floor vit d, b12, calcium....everything in order now and blood tests all optimal but still symptomatic so I went the t3 road 2weeks ago) the diff to my symptoms has been amazing and immediate, having been off work for 4 mths I'm now fine and dandy and functioning great on all levels except for my eyes. My dose has been cautious. I was on 225mg levo. 2 weeks ago I reduced to 150 levo and added 6mcg of t3 (quarter of 25 tablet) at 4.30am, then two further t3 doses at 10am and 2pm. week two I increased t3 doses to 12mcg (half of 25 tablet) and reduced levo to 100. I think I am going to reduce my second two t3 doses back down to 6mcg incase I'm over medicated. As if I had conversion issues which I think I did maybe I don't need as much t3 as the t4 I was taking. planning to get bloods done too, but as I'm paying for them was trying to wait till 4 weeks? anyone else had ted issues after introducing t3?? not due to see my endo again till January and he wont support me using t3 anyway, his only suggestion was anti depressants!!! I had very mild ted when I was really overactive, but not for many years now. I seem to be getting lid lag on my right eye too.
