    Question Anyone on sustained release T3?

    Hi all,

    Hashi hypo girl.
    FT3 fairly low compared to FT4. Have been trying to add a small amount of T3 - 2.5mcg to my regime. Although I am having some metabolic benefits, its giving me the terrible jitters and a confused head BUT only in the mornings when I'm up before I've even taken my first dose.
    I wondered has anyone tried sustained release T3 and did it give them any benefit over traditional T3?

    Hi Jaynie

    I just started transdermal t3 about three weeks ago - same idea as compounded...T3 slowly enters my blood stream thru skin/fat cells.

    So far, so good - I increased from 2.5 mcg to 5.0 mcg 6 days ago.

    I couldn't touch the regular T3 before (either in armour or cytomel) without it causing immediate cardio problems so, needless to say, I'm ecstatic and hope this continues. Hair loss as lessened although its still happening, and I do have a lot more energy.

    hope it works for you...

    Sounds great Birchtree, I'm very pleased you are doing well.
    I took my ususl 2.5mcg of T3 yesterday and woke up this morning with pulse mid 90s, terrible shakes and raised BP. No good. Am seeing a new Doc so am hoping to get a trial.
    All the best, I really appreciate your reply, it gives me some hope,
