Interestingly, your TSH fluctuates throughout the day.  It's not the best indicator as to the status of your thyroid....your T3 is.  Go to -  http://www.drlowe.com/QandA/askdrlowe/t4therapy.htm - for a forum question/answer segment on synthroid.

Dr. Lowe is an expert on the thyroid and has written numerous, published medical papers on the subject.  He contends that "most" endocrinologists can't think outside the box and that synthroid is one of the worst things to take.  You can check out his website for more detailed info and wonderful forum Q & A from the doctor himself.

He has formulated his own thyroid preparation (by law he has to call it a supplement) which has dessicated thyroid powder in it (similar to Armour).  It can be ordered through him and that's what I'm now taking, along with his adrenal support - most thyroid patients have accompanying adrenal issues - and vitamins.  Thyroid patients have special needs in the vitamin department.  

After seeing and dismissing 4 other endocrinologists as being useless in caring about my specific needs and only their standard protocols, I'm feeling much much better~!

Just bought some Fucus plus and it seemed to make my blood pressure raise and heart beat faster. There was some benefit though. So, I go back & forth. My hands stopped being cold, didn't feel tired after a meal, had more energy.

Does anyone know if there's a way to go to a Drug store where they can change the compound into a lesser mg? I'm not sure b/c it's got two ingredients, but I'm curious now.


Wouldn't your doctor need to prescribe the lower dosage? I would imagine they could do it, but if the drug is by prescription I'd think the doctor would have to be involved.
