So, two weeks in switching from 125mcg Levothyroxine to NDT (WP Thyroid) and my journey so far...
I cut back to 25mcg of Levo and 1 grain (65mg) NDT; had palps, breathlessness, insomnia and anxiety, after three days of feeling unwell I cut out the 25mcg Levo and stuck with the 1 grain of NDT. Felt amazing. Slight increase in energy, feeling like my body more oxygenated and loads of complements about looking well.
This week I started feeling that hypo brain fog and fatigue (guessing the Levo is now out of system?) and as it's two weeks later have introduced 1/2 grain more NDT - making my NDT total of 97mg; no hyper feelings (yet).
I was expecting the transition to be uncomfortable as my body gets used to the T3 and with the dosage adjustment.
So, plan is I'm going to give another two weeks and then up by another half grain... was planning a test after a month which will be in two weeks, but wondering what others do / have done?
Also, when I check out the conversion table 1.5 x 65mg grains of WP = 125mcg levo so am I at the appropriate levels now..?!?!? I always had it in my head that most people need 2-3 grains per day? Thoughts as always very welcome. Thank You
