Looking to get hold of T3

I was diagnosed with hypothyroid in 2011, I am looking to get hold of T3 since my new endo stopped it after I had been stabilised on it by my previous one. Had very little symptoms with T3/levo combi therapy. I was taking 100mcg levo and 10mcg T3. Now taking 75mcg levo. Thank you

JUN-2017 (175mcg levo)

TSH 1.28 (0.2 - 4.2)

FT4 19.2 (12 - 22)

FT3 4.1 (3.1 - 6.8)

SEP-2017 (100mcg levo/10mcg T3)

TSH <0.02 (0.2 - 4.2)

FT4 20.6 (12 - 22)

FT3 5.5 (3.1 - 6.8)

NOV-2017 (100mcg levo/10mcg T3)

TSH <0.02 (0.2 - 4.2)

FT4 20.7 (12 - 22)

FT3 5.6 (3.1 - 6.8)

JAN-2018 (100mcg levo)

TSH 4.60 (0.2 - 4.2)

This is a past post by Lyn Mynott who runs I don't know if it will be helpful for you but it could be:-

This is happening far too often. You are extremely under medicated. Why have you had a reduction to 75 mcg when you were clearly under medicated on 100mcg?


Most T3 available without prescription is 25mcg so you will need a pillcutter and will have to see whether 6.25mcg or 12.5mcg T3 is appropriate for you.

Not impressed that your endo will remove T3 when you are doing well on it and seemingly also reduces Levothyroxine dose although you were undermedicated on 100mcg.
