Series: New Meds. Entry 2: One Week into NDT

So, I’ve been on NDT (Thyroid S) for one week now. I haven’t really noticed any difference, apart from being super tired on the first day which was a bit scary, but since then, I’ve felt the same as just being on Levothyroxine.

I was so tired on Day 1 that I got home from work at 5:30pm and slept on the sofa until I was woken up for dinner at about 7pm, and then I went back to sleep until 7am the following morning.

I’m going by the Stop The Thyroid Madness Protocols and so raising from my 1 grain a day for 1-2 weeks, having been on it for 1 week, to 1.5 grains, starting today. I’m a bit nervous about it being a bit too soon, but I feel I’m ready in myself and I think my body will be able to take it, so now I guess I’ve just got to wait and see.

I’m splitting my dose over the day, so taking half in the morning and half in the afternoon. At the moment, half a tablet and half a tablet at those times. When I go to 1.5, I will take 1 in the morning and half in the afternoon.

Part of me was hoping for there to be a difference within a few days of taking it, and I can feel myself getting more and more agitated and impatient about it, but I’ll get there.

I run a Facebook group, called Thyroid Family: Hypothyroidism Advice & Support Group. This group is for underactive thyroid/hypothyroidism patients only, and not medical professionals or anyone else. If you have any questions on living with hypothyroidism, or want some support, help or advice, please join us. 

I also run a group for the spouses, partners and other halves of hypothyroid patients, called Hypothyroid Patients Other Halves – Support & Advice Group. This is for the other halves only and not patients.
