    Liquid T3 questions

    Hey guys,

    I did a search and couldn't find much on Liquid T3. I was diagnosed with hashimoto thyroiditis 11 years ago and has been a constant battle with different drugs trying to balance it. My levels are through the roof, Higher than multiple Drs have ever seen. My question is would trying something like liquid T3 help balance my levels? Everytime I take meds for this I have horrible depression and hate life.

    Does anyone have experience with this?

    Thanks

    What did the doctors say and what meds are you referring to?

    The dr's both said " I have never seen anything like this before... can we do a case study" My answer was no because I have been on 4-5 different meds and I had bad sides from all of them. I have been off my meds for the past 2 years and feel great and as dumb as it sounds I know it is affecting my body fat and I am trying to cut down. I know it needs to be fixed for more than physical appearance. I feel great though minus being a little tired at time. The last 2 meds I was on was lyvoxl (sp) and synthroid both were my breaking point. Could murdered someone and not cared. Looking into natural alternatives and when I was on ar-rs site looking for some other things I stumbled across T3 and thought I would ask about it.

    Thanks

    Liothyronine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Ever taken Cytomel ? Liquid T3 is the same thing.
    It is also what Synthroid converts to.

    I have I couldn't recall the name other than it started with a C. It worked but made me very depressed. Is it possible the liquid could have a different affect or no?

    I know that when I take T3 (Cytomel ) at 100mcg ED I'm lethargic as hell. Depressed? No. Tired? yep.

    Thyroiditis patients tend to start as severe hyperthroidism. Then as they reach the burnout point, will become hypothyroid. Which stage are you at?

    So is your thyroid function high or low, already?
    You're making this really confusing.

    do you mind quoting some lab numbers? TSH, fT4, anti-thyroid antibodies?
    and list all your meds, 4-5 different meds you're currently on?
