Re: quick question

Hopefully Midwest will chime in. I can tell you that too much of any thyroid medication will cause hyperT symptoms. The question is whether it is the thyroid hormone levels or the inert side ingrediants mucking with you.

Re: quick question

With in the normal range doesn't mean in the optimal region of normal. The optimal range of normal is 50 - 80 %. What were your last FTs? Have you been tested for Hashimoto's? It could explain the fluxing.

Re: quick question

Last May I went from Levoxyl (T4) (<-150 / 25->) Cytomel (t3) Combo to Armour. For me I went from feeling like a shell of a human being, to actually living life. Of course on the lower doses of Armour, I had fatigue, but I felt so much better being on Armour than the Levoxyl/Cytomel combo.

Personally, Synthroid and I dweren't a GOOD mix
