Has anyone else had their thyroxine dose recently reduced by their doctor?
Had a blood test this week, and elsewhere so did my mom (who also has hypothyroidism) and we have both had our dosages reduced due to "new guidelines about levels being issued".
I felt fine on my higher dosage and actually had to fight for a few years to get it raised as felt very lethargic on the lower level...the one they've just reduced me back to. My doctor hasn't spoken to me about this reduction, she has just written a new script and had reception call me to collect - next appointment I can actually get with her is in 3 weeks.
My mom, when speaking to her doctor, was also advised she shouldn't take thyroxine at night as it wasn't as effective - another thing I've been doing for the last few months & have found easier.
Anyone else come across this?
