Thank you for your question. Diotroxin is a synthetic formulation containing both T3 and T4 synthetic hormones. Eltroxin on the other hand contains only synthetic T4. Most people begin to experience some change in symptoms within three to four weeks of beginning therapy.
My question to you though is whether your practioner has looked at whether your thyroid imbalance is related to other endocrine imbalances such as in the ovaries or the adrenals. In my experience hypothyroidism is rarely a disease in isolation and often the use of thyroid-directed therapy alone is basicly looking after the superficial sypmptoms but not the underlying imbalance. Do some online research to inform yourself and then begin asking questions…
