Hi everybody. I have been on Ikaros for over a month now and I really don’t think its suiting me at all. I’ve started getting hypo symptoms that I haven’t had since taking Unipharma for over three years. Weight gain, severe constipation, fluid retention, low mood and anxiety, mood swings, problems focussing, low blood pressure etc. I had a bad virus at the beginning of the year and ended up with reverse T3. Had just got to grips with the effects of that when out of the blue I received Ikaros instead of my Unipharma,was assured it was purer and just as good.
I really don’t know what to do now. I can’t stop taking it in case I get worse. Before, on T4 monotherapy, I was on the verge of a myxodema coma barely able to function. Atm I am how I was when I first started taking levothyroxine about 12 years ago.
I am seriously thinking of going onto NDT after Christmas. I have a source but have absolutely no idea how to go about this. Has anybody got any advice please?
Also my new test results are below. If anybody has any thoughts regarding them I’d like to have them please.
FT3 6.3. (4.00-6.60) (normally its at the very top of the range)
Ft4 11.9. (7.9 -20.0) (usually around the top third)
TSH 0.01. (0.34-5.60)
