Dear sir, I'm hypothyroid. T4 is not working on me even with high dose. Does it possible for me to take T3 (liothyronine). I'm brain fog, tired, less memory?

In brief: Hypothyroid

Very uncommon not to respond to T4.
You MUST bring this to the attention of your doctor and do not wait too long! Your symptoms may not be thyroid related but you need to find out.
