It has taken 13 months BUT now on 100 mcgs of levo ...... No psychosis!

I just thought I'd share this with you all.....

Having had to raise by 6.25 mcgs of levo every 6 weeks and then 12.5 mcgs every 4/5 weeks after THIRTEEN MONTHS I am now on 100mcgs of levo plus 10mcgs T3.

My ENDO and I set ourselves a goal to reach 100 mcgs for Xmas!

I had a bit of a bumpy 3 days about 2 weeks ago.....BUT I've done it!! Hurrah!,

I will continue to raise every 4/5 weeks by 12.5mcgs until my T4 is near the top of the range ( I'm central hypo). My ENDO will continue to see me every 4 weeks until levelled off and then GP will take over.

This was a big milestone and has been hard won believe me. But it is hugely due to the support that I have received here on this forum.

I just want to say THANK YOU. X

  • Well done, Joesmum. It's been a long haul for you but with the help of your marvellous endo you've done it. I can only wish there were more endos like yours. Have a Happy and Healthy New Year.

  • That's wonderful news Joesmum for the end of the year and promises a better/healthier 2016.

    It does sound as if you've got a very good/sympathetic Endocrinologist.

  • Thank you all for your lovely replies.
