So I have been on Levothyroxine for 10+ months. ( 12.5 to 25 to 50) My FT4 & FT3 levels are still very low. (FT4 .83 FT3 295) FT3's have actually dropped. I still have most of my symptoms( foggy brain, hair loss, acne,memory issues, sleep issues, very tired) but the last 6 weeks I have suddenly become so depressed and down. Very unlike myself as I am usually a very spirited 19 yr old. So my next doctor visit is next week after finals and I'm wondering if I should ask my doctor to add T3. I eat organic, glutin-free and have a good vitamin support system, but I'm not feeling any better.
My goal for summer break, is to relax at home and try to feel healthy again. Get my life and brain back!!
Any suggestions as to why the meds are not really helping or maybe we are on the wrong track??? I will start by adding the T3 but any help will be great!!
