I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism in the last week of January. I started on WP Thyroid 32.5mg on February 6th. The first few weeks, I felt more energy, sleeping better, and even felt a little lighter. The fourth week, I went back to feeling fatigue and sluggish. I had a followup appointment on April 1st, which the doctor drew blood and said I was on the right dose, to just keep taking it and come back in 3 months to check again. When I got my prescription refilled, they gave me Nature-Throid 32.5mg instead, and since I didn't realize the pharmacy would give a different brand without notifying me, I didn't check the bottles. This was a little over a week ago, and now I have been feeling miserable in the mornings no matter how much sleep I get, I just want more sleep. I feel extremely tired and slow, confusion is returning, slow mental process, extremely sensitive to cold, and really hard to concentrate and stay awake during work hours. I am beginning to wonder if I am even responding to the medication or if I am on the right dose? My doctor never gave me the blood work, he just discussed the results with me. But he said that since it was my first time treating for it, he would start me on the lowest dose and go from there... anyone have any advice or suggestions?? I would love to start working out again to help lose weight and also to feel better, but I just don't have the energy to push myself to do it....
