    Group, Here's my question -- Does anyone think adding 5mcg T3 to 75mcg T4 could cause hypothyroid symptoms? Here's the background -- I take 75mcg of Synthroid/levothyroxine for hypothyroidism. I started feeling my thyroid symptoms recur about two months ago, and my doctor allowed me to add...

    I have been on 25 mcg of levothyroxine for 3 1/2 weeks. I feel pretty bad, maybe even worse than before I started it. I don't know if it is because of the medication, but I feel like it may be, at least partially. OK so here's what's up with me- let me know if this sounds familiar or any other...

    I was just on the Synthroid website looking around because I recently found out that Synthroid works 100% better for me than generic levothyroxine, and it baffles me a bit. So I found this blurb on the Synthroid site. "The Food and Drug Administration has determined that certain levothyroxine...

    Is it tough to switch from Levothyroxine to Nature Thyroid? Yesterday was day one and I took a 1/4 grain of Nature Thyroid in lieu of my .125 mcg of Levothyroxine. I felt a little bit flushed during the day but maybe a tad more energized. But by nighttime, I had horrible insomnia, felt warm all...
