I started self prescribing T3- Tyromel in November 2016. I have increased to dose from a starting dose of 6.5mcg. I am now on 31.25mcg. I know in that time I have probably increased to fast but I did do it in increments of 6.25. I recently went up to 37 mcg and noticed tremors and anxiety after one day so reduced it again. My problem is that I think I am allergic to the medication. This is saddening for me, because it's the first time in 5 years I've started feeling myself again. I've regained energy and feel alert and even feel like my memory is starting to return! I really don't want to stop taking it. Is there another version of T3 anyone can suggest? Can I just take benedryl every day? My skin has become hypersensitive to any change in temperature and is intensely itchy all over my body all day through. It has even woken me up at night and is incredibly uncomfortable. Even if I'm not itchy, if I have leaned on something or I get anything in my skin it goes bright red and becomes raised.
Looking forward to hearing about any alternatives or solutions.
