I am newly diagnosed. When my TSH test came back 6.5 my GP agreed to prescribe 100 mcg levothyroxine daily. I've been taking it for a week and as yet haven't noticed any difference. I'm fairly sure I've hypo for at least 4 - 5 years though, based on my symptoms. Unfortunately i don't have any other test results, as my GP didn't think they were necessary.
i've been reading about NDT and get the impression that most people do better on it than synthetic thyroxine. My question is, is it normal to take either one or the other or can you take a combination of both?
