My T3 prescription finally arrived. Thybon Henning 20. I was told to take half tablet daily but decided to start with a quarter. Began dose on Thursday a.m
Saturday morning pulse around 50bpm, though don't know what it was prior to start of meds.(only read about checking pulse the other day) By evening didn't feel great, mild chest pain just generally not right. Decided to miss Sunday's dose. Sunday heart rate am was around 75. felt very lethargic, by evening breathing not quite normal but difficult to describe, not breathless but strange. Then came chest pain again.only happened 2 or 3 times between around 9-11pm. Not severe by any means but really scares me.
Don't seem to get the chest pain until evening, sat watching TV.
Only other change I have noticed is constipation lessening a little.
Pulse this morning is 68
Anyone else experience this? Should I try an eighth of tablet?
Not on any thyroid meds before so unsure.
My T3 was just below range so thought this was going to help!
Can T3 cause any harm.?
Any ideas ?
Got gp appointment tomorrow when I was going to tell her that consultant has prescribed this, pretty sure she'll tell me to stop. Fed up with feeling so rubbish all time but as far as she was concerned my TSH was normal so no further action.
I would like to continue with the T3 but get really anxious with heart related things. I've read conflicting things regarding T3 preventing/causing strokes and heart issues.
