After 2 years of being adamant that I was not over medicated, chronic pain, weakness, discomfort and twitching in my hands/arms and spreading to my legs caused me to eventually give in to the GPs and reduce meds quite significantly. Pain drastically improved (though still lingers) yet my hair loss hasn't stopped. I was taking 40mg T3 and 25mg T4 when the pain began (October 2013), dose was changed to 50mg T3 only in November and pain worsened and hair loss began (I'd already been very overmedicated according to my bloods for a year and half at this point). In attempts to sort out the pain my meds were altered a lot from December up until 6 weeks ago. I don't even remember what doses I was on but around 30mg T3 100mg T4 something like that. 6 weeks ago we finally connected the hair loss and pain to over medication and reduced my dose to 20mg T3 50mg T4. Like I said the pain and discomfort lingers but is significantly better but the hair loss remains I'm due a blood test this week but I'm sure on this dose my bloods would be in the 'normal' range
