I' on 100 micrograms per day of levothyroxine (dropped down 6 weeks ago from 125mc) and at same time went onto 10mcg daily of Liothyronine. The doctor clearly wanted to drop my down to 100 and i refused to be dropped down, so he agreed to put me on 10mcg of Liothyronine if i dropped. However, is this amount as good as a placebo in that it is such a small dosage it is unlikely to do any good? I'm due to see him today (he didn't turn up the first two appointments and registras had to talk to him on the phone!). My test results have not changed at all since six weeks ago. TSH is 0.03 (reason for his insistence that i drop the Levothyroxine), T4 is 17 and T3 is 5.7. I really don't know if i'm tired all the time still as i now take about three teaspoons per day of Guarana which seems to kick me into gear and i have energy now and seem to be back to my bouncy self. However, if it weren't to take such a high intake of caffeine.... Any advice on what i should say to the specialist endo doc today if he turns up at the hospital?
