To cut a long story short, since the ERFA debacle I have struggled with every desiccated thyroid I have tried and so am now back on to levothyroxine.
My doctor started me on 25mcgs of wockhardt ( I was very hypo) for 3 weeks. I was absolutely fine on this apart from the odd bit of nausea and feeling very hypo but no adverse reactions.
Then I tried to raise to 50 mcg's and after only 3 days was hit with most earth shattering depression. It was terrifying. I seriously felt suicidal. I called my GP and immediately dropped back to 25 mcg's and things improved slightly. Much less depression.
I am woefully undermedicated but frightened to raise incase it happens again.
I recall this depression happening years ago when I was given Teva levothyroxine. I was fine on mercury pharma.
Can anyone please take a guess as to why this is happening?
I'm wondering if my body wants to wait for the first 25mcgs to convert before sticking anymore in there?
Sorry to be a pain. Incidentally today I went and got some mercury pharma levothyroxine and am going to try and raise with that.
