I recently went hyper from adding T3 to my regimen. My endo advised me to stop all thyroid meds for 3 days, then drop the T3, and take only T4.
So I went FROM:
5 mcgs of T3 twice a day
*50 mcgs of Tirosint once a day (*this was up to 88 mcgs of Tirosint when I went hyper, we went down to 50 a couple of weeks ago hoping it would help but I still felt bad)
88 mcgs of Tirosint once a day
Does anyone feel like I should've started lower with the Tirosint instead of the full 88? Or since I had only missed three days, is that a pretty even swap? I had worked up to 75 mcgs of Tirosint successfully before upping to 88 mcgs and then adding the T3 which proved way too much at once.
Also is it possible I will feel better sooner than the 5 weeks since I have been on some level of thyroid med the entire time? Or do changes always usually take the full 5 weeks?
Thank you for reading!
