I was diagnosed with graves in June 2016 and been on tapazole/methamazole for 10 months and while my T4 and T3s have been in range from the meds, my TSH stayed suppressed at <0.01 and my endo was ready to increase my meds Which I was not happy about!
I posted my dilemma here and Linda recommended that o try acetyl-l-carnitine. I started taking 500mgs 4 weeks ago and had my lab done today and my TSH went up from undetectable to 0.26!!!! It's still low but it's definitely a vast improvement and I will say the ONLY thing I've done different was to take acetyl-l-Carnitine so I'm fairly confident it helped with my TSH. Thank you so much Linda for your advice.
Now my next question is, my t4 and t3s both dropped a bit (lower end of range). I'm currently on 2.5mgs and 5mgs tapazole on alternate days. Should my next step be decreasing my dosage to maybe 2.5mgs everyday and see where it goes? I don't see my endo for another month but she gave me permission to play with my dosage if I feel unwell, and I have an extra blood lab script in case I need to get tested.
