3 weeks into my trial of T3 (5mcg twice a day) added to reduced T4 (75mcg per day) and I am feeling worse than ever, the fatigue is just all consuming and I have to take a daily nap. So I wrote to my private endo for advice and this was his reply:
Thank you. As you have benefitted from neither a higher dose of Levothyroxine nor a combination of both Levothyroxine and Liothyronine, and indeed are worse with the combination treatment, you should revert to your original dose of Levothyroxine of 75 ug daily. The only interpretation is that your troublesome symptoms cannot be attributable to your thyroid disease or to its treatment. I will write to your GP. I am sorry not to be more helpful but it is important to have excluded your thyroid from the equation.
Don't know what to do now, if I go back to the original dose I know I will just feel rubbish.
