Can anyone message me to let me know where I can get T3?

I posted my results on here a few months ago and have followed advice re gluten free/vitamins etc.

I am exhausted. I’m putting on 2lb a week and I have no energy for anything. I am having ‘X’ rated nightmares every night and feel worse than when I started on thyroxine last March. This just can’t be right and I have a gut feeling my medication is wrong for me. I have no quality of life and just don’t want to be like this.

There‘s no reason for me to feel this bad because if I had the energy my life would be great. As it stands I’ve had enough and don’t want to spend what life I have left having no energy to enjoy anything. I’m only 63 and I’m worse than my mother when she died at 93.

Sorry for the depressing message but it took me 15 years to get medication and it’s made it worse so feeling gloomy.

Are you still taking 50mcg of levothyroxine? I couldn't read your tests too well as they are blurred.


Yes. It’s the usual GP story. TSH is okay so she won’t consider anything else.


Many doctors are unaware of anything hypo and is she aware the aim is a TSH of 1 or below, not 'somewhere' in the range.

Get a print-out of your results from the surgery, with the ranges and post on a new question.


are you UK based? Ask for a referral to an endocronologist, they can give you t3's, the GP's can't
