PTU and other thyroid meds?

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.

any thoughts would be a great help!

I just responded to your other thread, with an explanation of "block and replace".
