I have used Cytomel (brand name) throughout this process. As far as how I dosed it,
it was a process and a matter of trial and error. I had difficulty increasing doses
due to increased heart rate at times. I would increase gradually and be fine for a
week or so and then all of a sudden have increased bpm and have to decrease for a while
and then stabilize again and gradually increase. About week 4 or so I added
Dessicated Adrenal supplement (by Standard Process) to see if it was adrenals
having trouble tolerating increases. This did seem to make a difference. I did
finally reach about 115 mcg for the last week or two before clearance. I am
continuing with the Dessicated Adrenal. I am now on 75 mcg Cytomel per day.
I continue to be hopeful and feeling well. Basal temps have improved the last 4 days
and daytime temps have continued to reach 98.6-98.8 by mid-day. Energy and sleep are
great. I just feel good and am so grateful for Nick and Val's patience
with all my many questions.
I hope this information is helpful to others.
