Do you mean you raised it to 11 quarters?


no 1 quarter of a grain


Foxyeyes, do you have recent thyroid results and ranges to share? It's hard to advise without them. If you have ferritin, vitaminD, B12 and folate results please post them too.

As the symptoms have followed the dose increase you should go back to 1 grain for a week or two and then try a 1/8 grain dose increase.


my last ones were in june did post them but will try to find them again


Hi Clutter did reduce WP to 1 grain but not very well on it have now got a bald patch at the front of my hair line had a lot of muscle pain last 3 days also right side of face and neck are sore and tender i look awful and feel awful hubby is insistent i go back on Levo till i can see a good Endo even though i can't afford it am going to get adrenals tested what i want to know is do i have to leave a few days before i start Levo again i don't really want to go back on it but my hubby is so worried that NDT isn't suiting me and i may be damaging my health even more i do understand how he feels so am in a bit of a quandry at the moment sorry to moan but am a bit emotional at the moment.

Thanks in advance
