Since 2008 when I had thyroiditis, my thyroid has never been the same. Yet at the same time I was on Accutane to help with skin problems, and coincidence or not, my hormones have never been the same. I lost my period and my thyroid has been Hypo since then.

I was put on a compounded formulation of t4 and t3, but I decided to go back to see a new endocrinologist to make sure there wasn't we were not missing.

She put me on Levothyroxine (at a much lower dose) and then Cytomel. She said she had never seen someone on such a high dose of compounded medication before and either I am not absorbing it, or there is a difference between compounded/generic.

Anyone have success using either one of these thyroid medications? I am at a loss. Can they ever be resolved?
