Levothyroxine increase


Wanted to say thank you to clutter :) saw GP who agreed with you about increasing my T4 rather than adding T3 yet :) I've been taking 75mcg of Levo and he has suggested 100mcg with 75mcg on alternate days :) which my friend did suggest a while ago ! .. He said should be able to bring T4 up so more to convert like you said :) .. Thank you again for your help xx👍

Lynwinn, thanks for posting. I'm glad the advice helped and your GP has increased dose.

Yes he agreed with you and said best to try increasing Levo before jumping to T3 :) .. Just got to wait for it to kick in ? Trying to keep my stress levels down found a good book by Claire weeks that seems to help :) Thank you again xxxxxxxxx

PS do you know if activis comes in 100mcg ?? XXXX

Clutter in reply to lynnwin

Lynnwin, yes Actavis is available in 50mcg and 100mcg.

Great thank you clutter I will ask for some 100mcg .. Save me taking 2 shame they don't do 75mcg it's a nightmare cutting them :(

Thanks again xxxx

Hi, Have you tried a pill cutter. I have one from Tesco pharmacy it cost £2.50 and is magic for cutting even in quarters. x
