Hi. I have been on 150 mcg of Thyroxine for 20 years. I am 54 and male. What prompted the switch: I recently started getting a lot of itching and hives on my arms particularly and other areas. I consulted a homeopath and found I was likely experiencing allergic reaction to Thyroxine. The treatment appears to have worked mostly. Ok so how much Metavive to take equivalent? A week now since the switch on 40mg a day and I am now noticing the underactive feelings I used to have before taking thyroxine. Sluggishness, apathy, mental cognitive and memory issues plus mild anxiety. The last 2 days I upped it to 2 x 40mg per day and I hoping it will improve as a slow release catch up. I am alaso taking Sea Green capsules x 3 a day for iodine.
Is 40g x 2 per day enough Metavive for someone who was on high strength thyroxine of 150mcgs per day? What are your thoughts? And how do I regulate my health? I am not using our national health service any more since the covid scandal and cannot trust them anymore. Going it alone and self medicating feels a tad daunting so any tips and books / articles sgested would be very helful thanks.
