the T3 in Armour

I know that it take 4-6 weeks for T4 to build up to stable levels and to start feeling some benefits from that. It is also the case for T3? I was just wondering if down the line as the weeks roll by, if I would start to slowly get more and more of a hit from T3 like you do with T4...anyone?

Re: the T3 in Armour

If you split your doses of Armour, you should be able to tolerate the t3. I can't say this for everyone. Our systems are all different in being able to tolerate t3.

How much Armour are you on Pixie?

Re: the T3 in Armour

Hi Lady5o! I always appreciate your replies! I went from 75 synthroid to 90 Armour. I felt I needed a boost with the synthroid, but I wanted to try T3 for the last two labs was lagging. I know the T4 builds up over time, and that is why we wait 4-six weeks. I was just wondering if it was the same for the T3...that is since Armour has both! Again thanks!

Re: the T3 in Armour

Well, I found out that it does take a while for the T3 to build up in your body. It all depends on the half life of the med which for the T3 in Armour is anywhere from 1-2.5 days (maybe even three). So I heard to give it a couple of weeks...mystery solved.
