My lab results are as follows:
Free T3: 3.31 pg/mL (range: 1.5-4.1)
Total T3: 132 ng/mL (range: 81-178)
Free T4: 0.851 ng/dL (range: 0.8-1.76)
Total T4: 4.67 ug/dL (range: 4.5-12.5)
TSH: 1.82 uUl/mL (range: 0.4-5.5)
I am on levothyroxine specifically Euthyrox, and I am taking 25 mcg (I am a 155 lb female). I know you're supposed to start on a low dosage and work your way up, however I don't feel any different and am excited to get my increase in dosage.
I also have insomnia from the levothyroxine and wondering if it goes away after a little while, or if it's permanent.
Also, I started on Zoloft less than a week ago due to depression caused by digestive problems and other issues, so I know that affects the uptake of levothyroxine.
Should my dosage be increased? I'm scared my doctor isn't confident in this area of medicine. I'm currently in a foreign country and he's the only Doctor here that speaks English.
Thank you, any feedback is appreciated! No matter how small!
