Re: Am I the Only One With Unsuppressed TSH?

You can try other thyroid meds, either add a little cytomel (t3) that would suppress, or tirosent, which has less issues in terms of absorption. Free t4 isn't enough to determine hyper, you would want more testing.

What is your free t3 level? I would want them to monitor that in combination to determine if you were really experiencing hypo or hyper symptoms. Also, when I was being kept very suppressed, my endo. offered beta blockers if I wanted to reduce hyper symptoms, which you can do if you want to be kept more suppressed. You aren't being kept at a super high dose at this point.
