I have been taking WP Thyroid in combination with Levoxyl for a couple months now – symptoms improved somewhat, but fluid retention wouldn't subside. The doctor wondered if I wouldn't do better just dropping the Levoxyl – so I did almost two weeks ago. At first, I felt pretty great at 2 3/4 grains. Seemed to lose some of the water weight, and I definitely had more energy. But now it seems that my energy has dropped, and the fluid retention has picked up again.
I was told via this forum that maybe I went straight to 2 3/4 grains too quickly (from 2 grains + 75 mcgs Levoxyl) – I asked the doctor, and he wasn't keen on changing anything until next labs. I'm supposed to go in after three weeks for new bloods.
For those on NDT only – how quickly did your energy stabilize, and did it fluctuate? Is this a sign that I'm too low? It's so hard to wait three weeks every time something changes, because I feel like I know much sooner if something is off.
