Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


Yes, I am better now. It has taken a long time, but I am finally on a good combination of thyroid meds. I take 100 mcg synthroid (a T4 medication) and 7.5 mcg. of cytomel (a T3 medication). I have taken Armour also, but was unsuccessful with it as the ratio of T4/T3 was not right for me.

It does take some time to get just the right dosage of meds. to where you are feeling good. If they continue to just tell you it is anxiety, then get an anti-anxiey med. and see if it helps. Most likely it won't, but at least then you can say you tried and they will need to find something else. I take Ativan, an anti-anxiety drug, for the anxiety that comes with menopause. It does really help me, but I also need my thyroid meds balanced to feel my very best.

Good luck, and let me know how it goes at the doc!
