I've never noticed this before, but recently I started some t3, and it's all I can do to make it through the day... I'm feel SO tired and worn out..

Anyone else experience that?

when do you feel it? do you take the T3 multiple times a day or just one time?

If affirmation is all you seek, I've heard this complaint numerous times on the boards. Unfortunately, I've never heard of a good explanation for it.

On many of the websites about patients using T3, there is a caution to inform the doctor if experiencing this side.

The "Store" doesn't provide a pump, only a syringe. It makes it a pain in the ass to measure out 1/5 of a mL.

I planned to start with 25 mcg/day for a few days before ramping up the dose to 75-100 mcg

Keep the dose low due to the caloric restriction of your diet?

Try cutting off the end of a slin pin. That'll help you get 20ius easily and accurately.

and since this has a very short half life, i have heard that bid dosing is preferred by some for this exact reason. you might try spliting the dose.

while you may not do labs, you could test reverse T and see if the added T3 and lowered TSH is actually increasing reverse T. If this is the case than expect to start putting on body fat and lower energy.
