Question about T3 med?

Hi everyone,

It has been a while since I have been here. Diagnosed with Hashimotos disease and was started on armour 0.25GR 2 months ago, and I have not felt a difference. I finally called my doctor today and he is changing me to synthroid and T3 slow uptake. Is anyone on these 2 together? What is T 3 uptake. I had to find a compound pharmacy to make it. Thanks for any replies.

Do you mean "time-release" T3? I never heard it called "slow uptake" T3, but I suppose that is the effect that time-released T3 gives.

Anyway, if I were you, I wouldn't let myself be switched yet. A quarter grain of Armour isn't enough to keep a flea in motion, so I don't think anyone can say Armour has been given a fair trial in your case. If you haven't felt a difference, it's because the dose should have been increased at about a month, and then again a month after that.... until you do feel a difference.
I hope you have good luck with the new combination.

Yep, I agree! Take a look at the thread a few weeks ago (you can do a search) "How have you helped your foggy head" it has a great post by KKKittykat about Armour Dosing Mistakes. Hope this helps.
