I currently take 31.25mcg of Levo and I was going to order two pots of 32.5mg of Nature-throid (if it's available at the moment).
I just wondered whether people normally order two different brands of NDT when they are first trying it, in case the first type they try doesn't suit them?
Also, what should my starting dose be when I start it please, as I know people normally start on a small dose and work there way up, but I'm already on a small dose?
I want to change to NDT as I have never felt well on Levo and my symptoms have been getting worse for the past few months. Levo also makes me have a swollen stomach, which gets worse when I increase my dose. I have tried different brands of Levo, in case it was the fillers but it hasn't made any difference. I know that it's the Levo which is causing my stomach to stick out, as I stopped taking it for a few days last year and my stomach went down and when I started taking it again my stomach went swollen again.
