Basically I've been taking Nutrithyroid for the last year (+NAX) under Dr Peatfield and while I noticed lots of improvements in some areas, not so much in others. NT seems to work very well on the bowels which I was please about at first and my hair stayed in and looked a lot better on it.
However I still continued to suffer from poor sleep, dizziness, anxiety & headaches/migraine. I would often wake about 3.00 am feeling anxious & not able to get back to sleep.
I stopped taking NutriT three weeks ago after which time became constipated and more anxious, had a migraine.
Managed to purchase some Thyroxin on-line (thyronorm) 25 mcg and took one the other morning and within half an hour I felt much calmer, anxious thoughts had subsided and the feeling of being on a roundabout about to take off subsided. This is the third day on it and now and already staring to feel less anxious. I'm still slightly constipated but hope that will improve.
I had a blood test in February which was TSH 2.85 (0.2 - 4.5) & FT4 12.7 (9 - 24)
I'm now self-mediating as my doctor considers me euthroyd.
Sorry this is a long question, but would I notice the effect of Thyroxin this quickly or is it just a placebo effect?
