Vitamin B12 Deficiency



I think it's too much Cytomel at 5 mcg. Maybe I can only tolerate 2.5 mcg Cytomel? Don't know. But it had to be discontinued today. Sad because it helps me get moving and feel like doing things.

Realized in August I had a B12 deficiency after reading up on it because my hubby's tests showed a deficiency.

less fatigue



Cytomel was added to my Levoxyl. I was told I could never take this drug because I had perimyocarditis in 2007. However, after a slow increase and taking Cytomel in split doses I do just fine on it.

Levoxyl 137 mcg
Cytomel    5 mcg (equiv. to 25 mcg LT4)
