I have a reverse t3 problem too. My doctor prescribed a straight t3 med (mine is compounded, but a name brand is Cytomel). He said you don't want a t4 med because you aren't converting properly and you'll just make more reverse t3.

T3 is a tricky thing. Too much can be dangerous, so you will probably start on a low dose and work your way up over a few weeks.
