I have been given a private prescription for liothyronine (2 x 2.5mcg per day) which should hopefully arrive in a couple of weeks.
I'm currently on 150mcg levothyroxine which I take at night. I prefer this as it means I can eat/drink tea as soon as I wake up, and I noticed I feel more alert in the mornings when I have taken it the night before.
My private endo has asked me to taper down my dose of levo over the next two weeks, so 125mcg this week, then 100mcg next week, before starting lio. She has also asked me to start taking levo in the morning with the first dose of lio, she said it's important to take them together. Then she said to take the second dose either around the 3pm slump (tbh this doesn't happen to me) or around bedtime, whichever I prefer.
Can anyone advise on whether I need to start taking my levo in the morning, whether it's important to take both the levo and lio at the same time? Since I no longer trust doctors I thought I would ask you guys whether there's any sense in this as I really would prefer to keep taking it at night if I can as I feel it fits into my schedule better. And regarding the second dose of the day, should I just take it when I personally feel I need an energy boost?
Also does lio need to be taken on an empty stomach like levo? Away from caffeine? Other supplements? Low dose naltrexone?
Thanks in advance!
