B12 Sublingual - Any Experience With It For Energy? Mg Or Others
I am currently considered in the "normal" range in my labs for hypothryoidism. I have posted on here many times and some are familiar with my saga. When my labs were posted on this board, MG did inform me that my Free T3 was very low and compared it with my Total T3. Total made it look like I was getting 69%, but Free T3 came out around 14.7%. That said - the doctor said it is in normal range - a little low....but he did prescribe Cytomel as a trial. I am taking one half of a 25 mcg tab a day and he lowered my Synthroid form .88 mcg to .75 mcg for now.
That said as a refresher - I have been taking the Cytomel since Thursday - only a few days and because my original problem with all of this started with Armour and heart palpitations and I know Cytomel can do that, I am splitting the dose to twice a day, taking about 6+ mcg in the morning and the rest in the afternoon. Dr. Lupo on the message boards said he usually starts people on 5 mcg a day and then if it seems to help increases it to another 5 - so I thought my plan would work. I have also read that you can take with food and I know it decreases its absorption - but I want it to work, if only slowly - so I have taken it with food. All trying to avoid heart palpitations. So, he said I should know in about a week - and with the way I am doing it I guess it will be longer? Any comments?
Also, wondering if anyone has any experience with the sublingual B12? I have some of them and wondered if they would help my energy - what energy? I have none and I am actually more exhausted than having no energy. Any thoughts on this? I guess it wouldn't hurt me and any energy would be better than none.....
Anyway, that's where I am right now - so would appreciate any input you all may have.
