Question changing from T4 to Cytomel

I'm new here and would like to know if anyone has changed from just T4 meds to Cytomel. I am in the process of doing this at the moment and would like to know of any problems or symptoms you have when doing this.

My last test results were normal I was told:

TSH 5.62 (0.2-4.5)
Free T4 24.4 (9-25)

I was getting nowhere with my doctor who just wanted to give me anti-depressants.

I cut down my T4 and started to take small amounts of Cytomel and have now got to 3/4 tablet of 25 mcg of T3.
Do I keep on adding small amounts until I feel good. I feel only marginally better at the moment and for the past 5 years have been told that I have post viral fatigue.

any help most welcome

What dosage of T4 were you on before?

I am not a doctor, nor have I ever played one on TV...
