wondering if anyone else out there with GD takes PTU along with other thyroid meds? I did great on the PTU based on my first set of labs and felt fantastic (tsh was .0004 but FT3 was 5.6 and FT4 was 1.6-both of those were either slightly over the lab range or at the high end). 6 weeks later my tsh was 7.7, ft3 fell to 2.6 and the ft4 went to .063. now i feel worse than before i was even diagnosed with GD. ii liked the way i felt with the previous labs and am wondering if there are other meds to take along with the ptu to increase myf t3 and ft4 to what it was.
