    have not heard/read anything about this one....there are quite a few people on here with thyroid issues, though, so you might get a good response....if you don't, I would try going to stopthethyroidmadness.com (I think it's dot com,might be dot org) or the thyroid board

    maybe a T3 med. If that's what you're on, there are probably a number of people on the board who have tried it. You might also post on the thyroid board.

    Best wishes.

    I have been useing it for about 4 years and it helped my pain, sleeplessness, energy, weight etc. I just had it compounded with some t-4 as my Dr. wanted that raised a bit. I take 137.5 mcg's in the Am. Some Dr's believe we have a problem with conversion of t-4 to t-3 .

    Street129, TRIIODO-L-THYRONINE SOD is a T3 preparation. ITC Pharmacy is a compounding pharmacy in Castle Rock, Colorado, used by Fibro and Fatigue Centers. Might that be what you're reading?

    I also get mine through ITC. They generally start you out with a small amount and increase it gradually. Hope you see some improvement.

    I just started taking triiodo L thyronine sod two days ago- I've been borderline low thyroid for 20 plus years but no one would put me on any meds- I'm 52 and going through menopause and decided I could not take the weight gain after during everything in my power-
    I noticed you are on a higher dosage I'm only taking 20mcg one a day-
    When did you feel a difference? I'm so anxious to feel BETTER!
    Thanks!

    I recently started this med - I've been borderline low for 20 plus yrs and finally visited
    ITC for a consult and she put me on 20mcg once a day- I'm hoping this is enough to help me lose the 10 lbs gained during menopause!!! UGH how long did it take you to feel a difference?
    Thanks !
