Dosage: 6.25 mcg Daily
Advice & Tips: Started as to help with depression fatigue, lowered to 12.5mcg without explanation , now trying to stop Rx but encountered extreme fatigue, so added back 6.25mcg per day and will have follow up with dr. Pharmacist had not heard of T3 for depression and looked at my history and said my through levels were high? So Dr appointment is due as the fatigue created by stopping could be depressing😬
