Levoxyl:Cytomel ratio

I am taking 75mcg levoxyl and 10mcg Cytomel. Is this a good ratio?

Sounds reasonable. Did you drop Levoxyl when you started Cytomel? I've noticed that often the rule "a part of levothyroxine is replaced by T3" just doesn't work (taking T3 has really nothing to do with T4 - but when you start taking T3 it suppresses your thyroid's own function so your FT4 levels may come down a bit anyway without cutting back T4 med). How are you feeling?

Hi f01 welcome !! My questions to you are:
1) How do you FEEL?
2) What are your labs like on these doses?

That said when I was taking this combo, it was 150 Levoxyl / 25 Cytomel which is a 6-to-1 ratio therefore similar to yours. Don't think we should get wrapped up in X-to-x ratio, more on how the patient feels. A little Cytomel can go a l-o-n-g way
