Just got my latest results from Medichecks and it says I'm over on my FT3. I'm currently taking an evening dose of 100mcg T4, and a morning dose of 12.5mcg (half tablet) of T3.
Symptoms wise, I feel better with more T3 - much more energy etc. I have a little bit of chest tightness and a couple of other minor symptoms which can be ticked off the Thyroid UK hyperthyroid list, but nothing major.
What I would like advice on is whether I should reduce my T3 dose to a quarter of a tablet, or put my T4 dose back down to 75mcg. The added complication is that I'm going travelling for 6 months (seeing my doctor Friday!) so I need to make a decision quickly and haven't got too much time to titrate! Alternatively, do I try to take like 1/3 of the T3 tablet or some other dosage?
