I started using Cortef S a week ago due to low Cortisol levels. I am taking Synthroid a T4 and tried to introduce Cytomel T3. Due to low saliva cortisol results started Hydrocortisone so that I can address my T3 levels later on.
I am taking 7.5mg of Cortef at 7 am, 5 at 10am, 5 at 1Pm and 5 at 4Pm. slowly I manage to stay awake during the day and am able to stay up until around 9 Pm the last three days.
Would I need to start taking less of my T4 as I continue with the Hydrocortisone? I still find at times I feel very cold and about 30 minutes after taking the Cortef I start to feel warmer again.
How long will I need to be on this dose before my body temperature will stabilize.
I tried to switch to Tyrosint and gluten free T4 but started to become very dizzy, shaky and when cold or tense my whole body shakes and I also notice spasm in my right arm that often is very irritating, especially when I hold something in my right hand. Should I reduce my thyroid hormone. I have reverse T3 but not too bad. My outcome is 27 and lab range is up to 20.
Thanks for anyone who responds
