Hypothyroid and Dr. Reckeweg R19


I am 29, male, and a hypothyroid patient from the past 3-4 years. My symptoms include tiredness, lathargy, and low energy levels. I have been prescribed Synthroid. Recently I increased the dosage to 50 MCG in morning and evening and my symptoms got little better. However, I don't want to be on this mediciation due to the known side affects.

I found about Dr. Reckeweg R19 on WebMD forums and its my second day on it. I ham taking 15 drops three times a day. I will appreciate if I can be told about this medication and if there is another option I can try.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Its the second day I am on Dr. Reckeweg R19. Feeling bit better than what I used to before. I have less brain fog. However, heaviness in the eyelids is still there. My heartbeat did increase little bit so I reduced the morning and afternoon dose to 10 drops. I have also cut down on Synthroid to only 50 mcg and I am taking it in the morning.

I also did some research on the formula of R19 and found it consists of:

-Glandulae Suprarenales or Adrenal gland
-Glanduale Thumi or Thymus Gland
-Hypophysis or Pituitary gland
-Thyreoidinum which is Dried Thyroid Gland of the Sheep

I will update this thread in few days. If any of the doctors have recommendations for me, I will really appreciate that.
