I gave it a shot. I was on compounded T4/T3 for almost three months (T4=30mcgs, T3=70mcgs). Though my RT3 did come down, I ended up being more tired and gained more weight – 10 additional unwanted pounds in three months. I was told I would lose, I guess I'm one of the unlucky few that doesn't respond to T3 that way.
So I'm going to switch back from this dose to 125mcgs Synthroid and attack my adrenals, vitamin issues, and diet. Hoping that will help my T4 to T3 conversion and keep RT3 down.
My question is – can I just switch right back to my previous T4 dose? I want to do this safely, but also get on with it. Should I stop everything for a few days then re-introduce T4?
Any and all thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
