Armor dose is 480mg for 2 years. Recent T4 test was double max range. Doc wants to decrease Armor 120mg. I have concerns about losing the T3 portion in that 120mg of Armor, as I still have mild hypo symptoms and was put on Armor because I don't convert T4 to T3 well. I requested a T3 only med to replace the T3 I'd be losing and would even like to bump up T3 further to see how I feel. Doc is being a PIA about it though. No T3 test done this time, as doc says she only test it initially (?)
Am I on the right track in my thinking?
Shouldn't T3 testing be a priority in cases like mine? Or, should I just go by the way I feel for correct dosage?
What does it take to just buy these meds on your own and order your own testing?
Not happy with dealing with Doctors!
