Hallo Ann
Eltroxin contains T4, Diotroxin contains T3 and T4. The T3 is changed in the body into T4. The T3 acts more promptly with a more intense but shorter lasting effect.

I am currently on diotroxin and my doctor wants to put me on eltroxin because according to my blood test my thyroid is still not functioning correctly. If I increase my diatroxin will this help since I have to drink more 2 tablet of eltroxin now.
