Over medicated??

My doctor added T3 (3 times a day; 7.5 mcg) in addition to my Levo 75mcg. I started this on Monday, but I am feeling warm and a rapid heartbeat today. Thinking the dosage may be too high?? Any feed back is appreciated.

Re: Over medicated??

I think for a starting dose, it could be a tad high.
I'd talk with the doctor about moving ahead a little more slowly, decreasing the dose for now and working up to a higher one over the next few weeks.

The effects you're feeling are likely temporary and will dissipate as your body gets used to the higher hormone levels.
