Will T3 thyroid hormone affect normal thyroid functions?

Hi, Nick here 24 year old male, My question is about thyroid hormone t3, I made a mistake last week and started taking t3 in the hopes of losing weight. On the bottle its written 200mcg/ml of which I took ten drops from the pipete dropper. After my reserch online I realised what a stupid decision I made and now I m worried I might have messed up my normal thyroid functions. I have stopped today after taking it for about ten days now. Is my thyroid going to be fine? How long will take? Should I consult a doctor? Thank you.

You should be okay. You didn't take it for very long, so I doubt that any long term damage has been done to your thyroid. There may be some mild suppression of thyroid function if anything, but should resolve quickly if you are in otherwise good health. Please be careful in the future! Hope this helps.
