Lately my tisoint have been giving me terrible hearburn and burning stomach. It’s like a lava every time I take it. Dr gave me antiacids but struggling with their side effects. Also i noticed that i get extemely anxious and shaky when taking my tirosint. I’m on 100 mcg my tsh was 0.41, ft4 1.1 ft3 2.3 dr wanted to add t3 for 5mcg but I get even more anxiouse, palps and headache when I add the cytomel. Should i reduce the tirosint to 75. Anybody had this issues with tirosint?

You may be still taking too much. I was taking Levothyroxine tablets and switched to Tirosint last November. 5 weeks later I developed heart palpitations and headaches anxiousness. Labs showed I was hyper now. This stuff is WAY stronger than anything else. I’m still struggling trying to find the right dose. Dr. had to reduce my dose twice because of the heart palpitations
My doctor had me on 88 µg of Tirosint. I wanted to try the medication because I was having issues with sensitivity to ingredients. After five weeks of being on Tirosint I developed heart palpitations, my TSH was .25, so below the range, I went from .89 in October of last year to being below the normal range. My doctor had to reduce my dose twice to get my palpitations to stop. I do not like this medication because I feel it is overly strong. I just want to go back to taking levothyroxin tablets. I am still on the medication, feeling better, but still having some heart palpitations in the evening . The heartburn you are experiencing, I also have had some of that being on this medication, I think that that possibly is a side effect. I find that you have to drink a lot of water with this medication
Currently I am taking 75 µg, five days a week and skipping Saturday and Sunday, I think only because she wanted to get my heart palpitations to go away. I get blood work done this next Monday, so I will have to see where I am at. At times I still feel hyper and other times I feel hypo, I just don’t get it anymore. My thyroid is almost gone, so I feel like I should be taking the same amount every day, which I’m hoping my doctor will put me back on the correct dose and just take it every day. Sometimes I really feel like my doctor doesn’t know what she’s doing. I told her I wanted to go back on the levothyroxin tablets and she said oh no will just stay on this because you’re doing so well on it! What a joke! The only reason I’m in this position with being hyper and reducing my medication is because she overestimated what I needed, even though I told her I had lost 7 pounds. I think I feel better probably with a TSH of .89- 1? Honestly this is been going on almost a year and very rarely have I ever been stable. I’ve never really been sick in my life, so this is very difficult to deal with, and it doesn’t help when the doctor doesn’t seem like she knows what she’s doing either
