So multiplied drs, two of the best endos in the area plus other doctors are saying that I am over medicated at 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 grains that I take sublingually throughout the day. Last test results on 2 1-4 grains using the trough testing method, do take thyroid meds in am and test when I would have taken the meds, was used:
Ranges now added/posting edited:
TSH 0.01 (0.27 - 4.20)
Free T4 1.17 (0.93 - 1.70)
Free T3 3.9 (2.0 - 4.4)
I am now dosing one grain at 8am and four 1/4 grains every three hours (all sublingually). Finally just given hydrocortisone and take 2.5mg/6 times a day sublingually, along w my WP Thyroid (NDT)...all set on my phone alarm to know when to take my meds)
In menopause, and placed in progesterone and estrogen. Nutritional deficiencies found and are being addressed.
I was on levoxyl for a decade, and they think that I gave Lyme, seeing a Lyme literate dr, and possibly Addison's disease.
1) did it seems like I was overmedicated in the first place on 2 1/4 grains per the above noted test results?
2) current medication: will my TSH at only 2 grains now be different on the same amount of medication, 2 grains, but dosed differently...2 grains at 1 grain + two 1/2 grains VS. 1 grain + four 1/4 grains.
I know I'm probably driving people crazy w the way I've sliced and diced meds and the way I'm dosing, etc. I've been struggling for years and I can only take so much t3 at a time, so I think moving toward the minimal quarter grains throughout the day is helpful. I'm sure the adrenals need to be supported first to get the thyroid meds right. Oh, my thyroid is completely non-functional at this point apparently per an endo
Thanks and any advice is appreciated!!
