Levo Day 10

Morning all, would appreciate others input, on day 10 25mg Levothyroxine, days 2-6 felt even worse, but days 7-9 oh my, felt amazing, like someone had taken my eyes out given the a good polish & put them back in again, foggy head gone, lots of energy, actually felt like me again. But today the fog has descended again & feel rather like I am back where I started, is this to be expected, feels like some sort of torture, allows you to be well for 2 days, then throws you back down again!!

Aineyy, 25mcg will have been absorbed days 7-9 and your body reacted appreciatively to the hormone. Day 10 it is probably telling you it wants more. It's a good sign you reacted well early. The hormone is working but it takes up to 6 weeks to metabolise fully and you will probably need a dose increase after 6-8 weeks. Arrange a fasting (water only) early morning blood draw when TSH is highest and take your Levothyroxine after the blood draw.
