Hello All!

I've been taking Synthroid for a few years now and my metabolism has always been a bit off (15-20 pounds up, temp never above 97.5, needs to nap regularly, etc.).

So I'm trying out a new MD (family doc, not an endo), he ran a full panel on me and thinks I'm not a great T4 to T3 converter. For those of you who are familiar with compounded hormones, does this below look like the right next step for me?

I was taking Synthroid 75 mcg 4 days/week, 62.5mcg 3/days week. But need a boost. So now taking

0.75 of 1 grain for 2 weeks
Them will bump up to 1 grain

Yeah I tried that a few years ago and it felt like too much. He was saying these capsules are more like an extended release type of effect
