Hi! I've read a lot of post and articles about "T3 makes me tired/sleepy" but I've still don't have a clue of what's happening.
I have hypothyroidism since forever, a week ago I got the $ to take a lab test, and got high TSH (4.38 µUI/ml) and pretty normal T3 and T4 (free and total), didn't tested RT3 because the lab don't even know what it is. 😅
Since I have hypothyroidism but don't know about my RT3 levels or autoimmune levels I can't take T4 or DTE because of the high risk of being Hashimoto or high RT3. Plus I think T3 should be enough to at least lower my symptoms.
The same day (7 days ago) I bought Triyotex (liothyronine the only brand in Mexico).
75mcg in an undividable capsule! It's a crime.
But 😄 I'm really tired of everything, so I tried it since I had not another choice, I started with 75mcg telling myself that even if it's a lot to start, I want to feel Hyperthyroid symptoms at least once in my life, It doesn't bother me if I had anxiety and high energy. But the opposed occurred.
I'm feeling very, very sleepy and tired during the day after waking up after 10~12h of deep sleep. I still have constipation, normal heart beat, cold hands and feet, depression and low energy.
Reading the posts, articles, videos and every kind of source, I'm very surprised 75mcg of t3 didn't have any effect on me, even worse, the opposite.
What could be happening? Sorry for my bad english, but I don't know what can I do.
