I️ was taking armour 1 grain in divided doses .- and felt very ill.
After new labs
Ft3 -2.6. 2.0-4.4
Switched to t4 (tirosint ) 50 mcg 10 days ago and took cytomel 5 mcg twice a day ( same amount as armour ). Very unwell with the up and down with cytomel .
Dr changed it to slow release t3 last Thursday . Taken 7.5 am and pm. ( increase of 5 mcg of t3)
It had only been 4 days - so unwell with vertigo, nausea , chills . Gut issues .
I️ am curious if still too much t3. I️ do not think the ratio is right for me.
Is it a reasonable suggestion to dump the t3 and go up to 77 mcg of t4?
Or can someone verify that it takes longer that 4-5 days for body to acclimate to slow release t3?
I️ have important event in two weeks . Not that I️ can force wellness - but if there are any changes that could help alleviate the nausea / vertigo - I’m willing to try. Bed bound at moment .
Thanks for any input .
