Thanks to feedback received right here - I realize I am a "noncompliant" patient - and wonder if this is the reason I feel my T3 isn't working anymore (I'm on 125mg daily now - T3 only). I feel tired - and have gained about 6 lbs in 2 weeks. I have ALWAYS taken my cytomel in 3 doses: with 1) morning coffee, 2) with Lunch and then 3) in the afternoon. I realize taking it with coffee was stupid but it's what I've always done and seemed to work well for 6 months - not so much for last 2 months.
I know some of you have taken it all in one dose in the evening, with success. I'm a bit afraid to do so as my dose is so high, but I know i won't wait an hour for coffee (I get up at 4:30am, and need it to function for work).
So, I am wondering - Has anyone a) taken such a large dose at night all in one go? and b) did it help? and/or c) are there any others here who realized they should take their meds away from coffee and then seen improvement? (I'm willing to try forgoing coffee if it really will make a difference)....
I did a "reaction test" (not going to name it because I got kicked off an American message board for naming it, as though I was trying to market it - Hardly!) - it tests reflexes - very well respected test, and the result is that I am STILL hypo (slow) even though my Free t3 is high end of range (even right outside it) and T4 is below range (since I'm not taking any and TSH is 0.0014 (unsurprisingly).
