I decided to try the switch because I was not feeling my best after being on levothyroxine for almost 7 years. I have been very tired, and unusually sad. I am also still having a problem with hair loss, it's not getting worse, but it never really improved after I started the medication.
I have started taking evening primrose oil, because I have heard that can help hypothyroid patients with hair growth. I have also heard quite a lot that people have better results with a combination medication like thyrolar or armour. It was probably a shot in the dark, but I am really willing to try anything.
Thank you for the advice though, it's very hard to decipher things right now on my own, as I am only seeing a primary care physician who doesn't seem to know too much about the details. I made an appointment with an endocrinologist two weeks from now. Hopefully that will help!

T3 is a definite heart stimulant, too much for some folks, no effect at all for others. There should be no lasting harm at all from your experiment, though.
