I have searched through past posts but can't really seem to find my answer.
I am going to be given a trial on T3 as I don't feel well on T4 only (Eltroxin) and my levels fluctuate dramatically so my Endo has realised that there could be an issue as he has now seen my results fluctuate over the last 9 months ad is going to trial T3.
I have spoken to my Pharmacy already and as they do not have any patients currently on T3 I am going to request the brand that I want to try but even after reading all the posts on T3 I am confused and do not know which brand to ask for.
I am unable to take Activis T4 so don;t want to try that as it doesn't agree with me. Mercury Pharma Eltroxin seems OK with T4 tablets but I don;t feel well so not sure if it is a binder/filler issue or a conversion issue making me feel so unwell.
My next set of bloods in 4 weeks time will include RT3 to rule that out but I think I have a low conversion issue anyway.
18 April 18 (150mg daily T4)
TSH 0.53 (0.27-4.5)
T4 25.7 (11-23)
T3 4.53 (3.1-6.8)
11 May 18 (150mg daily T4)
TSH 59.3 (0.27-4.5)
T4 14.9 (11-23)
T3 3.37 (3.1-6.8)
I do understand that tablets are very much determined by individual but I need a brand to start with and would like opinions please.
