I posted recently to say I'd started on NDT last Sunday. For the first three days (Sun Mon Tues) I'd begin on half a grain taken 2 hours before breakfast. However I was having bad side effects of extremely painful muscles, high temperature, diarrhoea and some dizziness.
After some kind people here responded, many felt I was under medicated for my results but perhaps I should go down to quarter grain then build back up. This is what I did as my private gp came back to me and advised the same. The side effects above went, but the hypothyroid symptoms of constipation and fatigue worsened (probably unsurprisingly).
I obviously need to ultimately be on a higher dose. Now the side effects are better, can I start taking half a grain again? Or perhaps take the second quarter at bedtime (split the dose but have a half grain in total a day)
I don't want to raise it to fast, but aware that the advice from here was to get to a higher dose in order to start feeling better.
