I'm new here and looked through the earlier messages for information on this but didn't find any.
I've been taking levothyroxin for a couple of months and after I got new blood tests my T3 was low so my dr added cytomel. I've been on that for about 3 weeks.
I felt a bigger improvement with the cytomel. I am more alert and less leaden and achey. But for the last week I've had itching all over my body and was gradually get worse.
I don't want to give up on cytomel as it does make me feel so much better so with my doctor's permission I am going to drop down to 5mcg instead of 10. I'm hoping the itching will go away and their will still be enough cytomel to keep the improvements.
I'm wondering if the itching is a sign that I'm allergic to the medicine or if it is just a phase I have to go through while adjusting to the new medicine.
