Thyroid-S?

Hi,

A few months ago I ordered Thyroid S and have tried taking it twice but feel horrendous on it! I just wondered if anyone else had the same experience? I did have Naturethroid before and felt good on that so will give it a try again. I just can't stick on Levothyroxine as feel like my whole body is sort of drying up and I'm living half the life I used to as I can't be bothered! Had an unsuccessful appointment with an endo a week or so ago who said the usual that everyone seems to be told and refused to prescribe NDT.

How are your levels of B12 - Ferritin - Folate - VitD ? So often reported here that thyroid meds do not work well if the levels of the above are low in range .....

Thank you. I'm embarrassed to say I have no idea! I will ask for blood test results and see if that tells me about B12!

Thank you. It's a lot to learn but learn I must as the doctors don't seem too bothered!

I felt very unwell on thyroid S. Have you tried thiroyd? This was better for me ( but at higher doses gave me tinnitus), felt quite warm and energetic. Quite cheap too. Now on levo, lio combo.

I haven't, no. I'll keep a note of it. Interesting you felt unwell on it too. It's a bloody minefield trying to get it right!! Thanks for that.

I felt worse on Thyroid S but suspect I have increased too much and too fast.

It's difficult to know the correct dosage. Am on my own with it as docs won't or can't prescribe and the endo said he definitely would not prescribe it.

I felt unwell on Thyroid S as it increased my depression and muscle pain. I tried it twice to be sure and it happened both times.

So disappointing, isn't it? It wasn't muscle cramps but I did feel depressed and just horrid on it.

I started taking it at the end of Nov after having been on Levo. I had been supplementing iron, Vit B12 and Vit D prior to starting as these being optimal seem to be a precursor to it working well. I also take selenium and magnesium.

The first time I took it (1 grain) I felt a rush I think from the T3 but that went after a day.

I gradually increased to 2 grains and initially at that level I felt odd - heart palps etc, but because I'd had something similar when I started taking Levo I persevered and it went after a couple of weeks. I think sometimes it takes a while for your body to adjust and now I feel fine on it.

I don't know that it works for everyone, but I would maybe confirm you are optimal with vitamins and iron / ferritin before giving up on it completely.

I'm glad to hear you've managed to suss your dosage and are feeling fine on it. I think you're right, I need to go and ask for my blood test results and check everything out. Thank you!
