Hi, I'm currently on thyroxine but alternating the dose since my system didn't like the jump from 75mcg to 125mcg. I take 75 mcg on one day and 100 mcg on the next and so on. This has been going very well until now because I'm getting an increase in constipation. I'm away on holiday so I can't see my GP as I'm about 120 miles away, but I was advised to seek help if it continued.
Is it safe to increase my dose by myself? I'm not sure if the constipation is an indication that I'm not on enough thyroxine and I don't want to end up taking too much and going hyperT. I'm thinking of taking prune juice but I'm staying somewhere that doesn't have many shops that may stock it. There is a community hospital nearby but I'm not too keen on going there as it would appear on my medical records that I attended and my own doctor might question it when I next go to an appointment.
Can anyone advise?
