Hello group, I am wondering if somebody noticed differences in potency or response to different formulations, but similar quantities.
I have been using Merck's Novothyral 100 (100T4 and 20T3) and 75 (75T4 and 15T3) for some time now (2 years +) but, due to a plateau in metabolism and symptom relief I have recently switched to Unipharma Greece Dithyron (50T4 and 12.5T3)
Now, the Novothyral is formulated as 5:1 T4:T3 and the Dithyron is 4:1 and therefore, at constant T4 there is 25% increase of T3 for the Greek mix.
However, a single pill of Dithyron which is 50T4 and 12.5T3 has more "feeling" to it than a Novothyral 100 which is 100T4 and 20T3. Actually it feels like the first doses of T3, warmth, energy, mental clarity, and some hyper like agitation.
I am puzzled...why such a difference in effect ? Ok, 25% increase of T3 might be an answer but I've felt it from the first pill, which was half of my usual Novothyral dose. And, a few more days later, the effect is still consistent.
Besides quantity variation, might be the different formulations at work here? Potency? Or the metabolic response to this formulation?
Anybody else noticing this?
