Re: worst scenario ?
Please be assured of this... I am personally against over medicating.
I don't like pills and I don't usually think pills are a solution to health issues. I don't take pills lightly!
BUT, in this case, not only are these very much needed hormones, if your body can't produce what you need, you do NEED them to be healthy.
NO, they are not harmful to try.
I personally think you have not reached your optimum thyroid level. That is just my opinion.
If I remember right, your doctor wanted to try a higher dose of thyroid, so he is not satisfied that you have reached your best dose yet, either. If he sees that it has gone over, he will reduce it.
No, this process of trying doses will not harm your body.
Please also take B 50 or 100 complex daly, to feed your nerves, which seem to be pretty stressed out. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
I know this is confusing. But it won't harm you!
Did you ever get the book, The Thyroid Solution? I think reading it will calm a lot of your fears.
