My dosage requirements have changed and I have been put on a dose od 125 levothyroxine. I was on 100 but I need more as I develop hypo symptoms within 3 days of taking 100.
I have been on the 125 dose for 10 days and I'm feeling very hot in the face and my shoulders and thighs ache. Also, my pulse is gradually increasing and it was 90 today which is not within a normal range.
Therefore, I feel my dose is between 125 and 100, so I want to break up the dose with 2 x 100 tablets as I'm feeling less and less comfortable.
Should I get a blood test to check my levels and adjust?
I'm aware that thyroxine needs to stabilise in the blood between 4-6 weeks but I don't think I can bear the increase of these symptoms - and feel worried about the effects.
I appreciate any help and insights you can give me.
