Spoke to doctor this morning. Had been over-medicated, took that dose for 38 days. I have now taken the lower dose for same amount of days, but still can't sleep on my own. I take sleep meds after hours of trying to sleep on my own. Dr says it can take just as long, or a little longer for body to correct itself after over- medication and OK to still take sleep meds as needed. Has anyone else had to take sleep meds weeks after getting off too high dose of levothyroxine?
